My Neighborhood Network Meetings Set to Strengthen Communities
BIDDEFORD— The City will launch the My Neighborhood Network initiative at the end of July to promote revitalization of Biddeford’s downtown neighborhoods in partnership with the University of New England’s Coastal Healthy Communities Coalition (CHCC). Through My Neighborhood Network, residents of six defined neighborhoods will meet to discuss what makes them feel connected to their neighbors and the city, as well as changes they would like to see made in their communities. In the months ahead, each neighborhood will work on improving key areas they prioritize with support from the City and the community partners.
The initiative kicks off on July 31 at Rumery’s Boat Yard at 4 p.m. for residents who live near Cleaves Street. A joint meeting for the South Street Neighborhood and residents who live near West Cutts Street or Mayfield Park will be held on Aug. 2 at Seeds of Hope Neighborhood Center at 11 a.m., and the Bacon Street Neighborhood will meet on Aug. 6 at 1 p.m. at the HUB at 46 Sullivan Street. Meetings will be facilitated by Community Development Director Linda Waters, Seeds of Hope Executive Director Rev. Shirley Bowen, and CHCC Director Sarah Breul.
