This Tuesday night the Oregon Hill Neighborhood Association is scheduled to meet.
And, finally, received this nice note from Emily Griffey-
I hope that you will consider posting this event to the Oregon Hill News website. Unfortunately the event does conflict with the Oregon Hill Association meeting but it would be great if some community members could attend this event as well. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Dear North Richmond Community :
As you are aware, the Mayor is dedicated to collaboration, communication and cooperation between Richmond’s citizens and his administration. Mayor Jones knows that citizens expect and deserve a responsive government.
Many of you may know about the old “neighborhood teams” process. In an effort to improve upon service delivery and include residents and business owners in the decisions that affect them, Mayor Jones has created the Mayor’s Participation and Communication Corps (MPACC). MPACC is an integral enhancement to the sharing of information and increased community involvement.
MPACC has two major components:
1) Proactive, service driven initiatives including but not limited to matters relating to land use, public safety, parks and recreation, all of which will strive to improve services and conditions; and
2) Rapid, courteous responses to your requests for services such as fixing potholes, removing abandoned cars, addressing blighted properties, and cleaning up illegal dump sites.
To make sure services are close to you, MPACC has been organized around the four Richmond Police Department Precinct structure. Each sector within a precinct will have a MPACC Sector Team. Mayor Jones is selecting co-chairs from each sector to lead these MPACC Sector teams.
The MPACC groups will allow for more accountability not only from the City but also the residents. The Mayor will be holding the MPACC Sector Team launch in the 4th precinct on Tuesday, September 28, 2010.
This meeting will be held at Holton Elementary School ● 1600 West Laburnum Ave. ● Richmond, VA 23227 from 6:30 PM to 8PM. At this meeting Mayor Jones will introduce his co-chairs for the 4th Precinct and outline his vision for the MPACC Program. We hope you will attend and we urge you to invite your civic association’s active members to this meeting.
If you have any questions about this initiative or the meeting on Tuesday, please feel free to contact me as I serve as the Coordinator for the 4th Precinct.
We look forward to your participation and dedication to your community and the City of Richmond!
