Reminder: NLNA General Membership Meeting this Thursday

Be among the first to get ahold of the Call for Artists and Artisans to work on the El Underpass project ...

... and learn about Census job opportunities and the future of Recycling in our community!

Join us Thursday, January 28, 7:00PM at the NL Community Center (3rd & Fairmount) for the first General Membership meeting of the New Year!

We will be releasing the long-awaited Request for Proposals, for area artists and craftspeople interested in doing work to improve the area beneath the Spring Garden El/I-95 overpass. This is part of our ongoing Spring Garden Greenway beautification project. The RFP will be released online Feb. 1 - but you can get it first by coming to the meeting on Thursday!

Also - come by for information on the 2010 Census, including well-paying Census-related jobs. And learn about RecycleBank, an innovative new program coming to our neighborhood next month.
