The City of Spokane's Neighborhood Services office is conducting a free Leadership Workshop on Saturday, October 22 from 9:00-11:00a.m. at the East Central Community Center 500 S Stone. According to the email, "Neighborhoods 101 is designed for new and seasoned neighborhood leaders who want to know how to effectively represent their neighborhood in the government decision making process. At this workshop you will learn the answers to the following questions: What are neighborhood councils and the Community Assembly and what do they do? What are the steps you can take to impact government decision making? How does the legislative process work and where do neighborhoods come in?"
This is a good opportunity for planning students to see how the system is set up in Spokane and to start thinking about how processes are integrated into planning.
The City asks that you RSVP to Sandy Scott at 625-6734 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
