Neighbor Spotlight: Evanston

The Evanston Work Plan is bringing residents together to shape Evanston’s future. On Saturday, October 27, more than 80 community members came together to set the Work Plan’s priorities. The Work Plan will be developed by residents, stakeholders, and other community members. It will include recommendations and strategies that respond to community priorities including housing, business districts, youth, community connections, and celebrating and preserving Evanston’s history and culture. All Evanston residents and community members are invited to join a Work Team. Work Teams will meet only four or five times starting at the end of November through the end of January, and will develop the recommendations and strategies.  Please contact Emma Shirey at shireye@xavier.edu or (513) 745-3935 to learn more or sign up for a Work Team.
