The Greenwood Community Council meets from 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.
On the agenda is how to improve Greenwood’s downtown business core, temporary art installations through the Art Interruptions project, and an anti-graffiti initiative that needs volunteers to help clean up our neighborhood.
This month’s GCC meeting focuses on how to fill empty storefronts in downtown Greenwood and end graffiti and neglect. While some businesses are thriving, others have been struggling to survive a dismal economy, and many public and private improvements have passed the business core by. It’s great to see other parts of the neighborhood being improved and rebuilt, but now downtown Greenwood businesses will also need a leg up, and some help from its community and the city. The meeting will focus on the future of the Greenwood business core, and actions to reduce graffiti and improve the environment for business. What’s working, and what needs to be fixed? As always we welcome thoughts from all community members, and for this meeting we’ve also invited Greenwood business owners and property owners to share their ideas and concerns. Please join us for a lively discussion, leading to an action plan for the community council over the coming year.
