This meeting was the second of three hosted by Ald. Deborah Graham (29th). She’s inviting residents to brainstorm how the ward can become more sustainable. Residents created a vision for their community at the first meeting in September.

At last week’s meeting, participants divided into different groups – transportation, jobs and industry, healthy business, cultural resources, peace and safety, community beautification, and youth and education.
