This past week, Clara and I presented the culmination of our Love Your Block work to the Planning and Neighborhood Development Department. We broke down metrics, told good stories, and measured the monetary value of our work. Cities of Service and the new VISTA, Scott Thompson, joined us via phone and Clara and I were able to articulate our successes in Lansing and where we want to see the program go in the future.
Overall, this was just a wonderful time to explain to the office where we go when we disappear for several hours throughout the day and illuminate the work we have done throughout the city. Below is a picture of several office staff, including Director Bob Johnson.
Everyone asked some great questions and we want to give our readers the chance to see our work. Attached is our presentation and accompanying documents. Send any questions to Clara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
