Community Issues Forum
September 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Community Issues Forum kicks off its new season at the Peaslee Neighborood Center with a forum focusing on community organizing. A panel led by Joele Newman, lead organizer for the Peaslee Neighborhood Center, discusses Peaslee’s Equitable Development Rubric and other collaborative neighborhood initiatives.
Typically, Community Issues Forums are held at the cathedral. Holding this Forum at Peaslee is fitting, because of the cathedral’s strong ties to this neighborhood center in Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
Besides its many neighborhood programs and services, Peaslee has in recent years provided effective organizing skills to residents who confront development projects that pose as threats to healthy residential living. Out of this work emerged the Equitable Development Rubric designed for neighborhoods attempting to gage how a new development will impact their areas.
Panelists at the Forum will also review other collaborative organizing now in progress dealing with the city’s tax abatement policy, the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, and “just cause eviction policy.”
All forums conclude with time for questions and comments from the audience.
Lunch can be purchased for $6.50, or you can bring a brown bag.
Limited parking is available in the parking lot next to Peaslee.
Applied Information Resources, organizer of the cathedral’s Community Issues Forums, have moved its office and is now located at 30 Garfield Place, Suite 302, in the building also known as the Cincinnati Club.
