3-1-1 Having A Voice Workshop
Building understanding of stormwater management, and the issues associated with polluted runoff, through education and participation activities is the backbone of the Our Voice Our Water project. The 3-1-1 Having a Voice Workshop seeks to bring together the citizens of Northwood Estates, Lincoln Heights and Washington Heights with resources within the community to assist in addressing stormwater issues in order to determine desired approaches to enact and influence changes community members would like to see implemented in their respective neighborhoods. It is our hope that the "3-1-1 Having a Voice" Workshop will enable engagement with communities and city officials to allow the development of long term two way communications.
