What's Up? -- October, 2013

From the Neighborhood Coordinator’s Desk

The Great Falls Neighborhood Councils will be meeting as per their fall schedules.  All changes in October will be noted in bold below. 

Neighborhood Council meetings are open to all, and public participation is crucial to the effectiveness of the individual Neighborhood Councils.  Citizens are encouraged to address the Councils with neighborhood news, concerns, items of interest, and/or success stories.  Please plan to attend the Neighborhood Council in your area, and let the members know what’s up in the neighborhood!
