Neighborhood Working Group(NWG)

The NWG was originally formed in 2016 with 18 individuals identified as leaders in their community by their neighbors. This group met monthly with Project Connect and NGA representatives from to August 2016 to March 2017 to discuss a variety of topics, concerns and community requests that were incorporated into the Action Plan and the NGA Construction RFP process. This group will continue to meet to ensure residents have a voice in the many upcoming projects in the area. We encourage residents to reach out to these neighborhood representatives and your neighborhood stabilization officer to discuss concerns and ask questions. Representatives include: Claire Wolff, Rose Green, Megan Betts, Brian Krueger, Mark Cross, Lucy Smith, Marlene Hodges, Sal Martinez, Rosie Willis, Patricia Huntspon, Timetria Murphy, Louis Moore, Dotti McDowell, Bernie Powderly, Jorlon Upchurch, Kurt Tarkington and Officer Jamie Partee.

Neighborhood Meetings

Alignment between local officials and community members is the key to Project Connect. For this reason, Project Connect representatives attend neighborhood meetings in the eight Project Connect neighborhoods. We are invited by community leaders to listen to concerns, provide specific information, receive feedback, and answer questions. If you want us at your meeting, send us an email.
