May 14th – Neighborhood Summit

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday May 14th for the reImagine West Hill / West End Neighborhood Summit! The Summit took place from 9am to 3pm at Philip Schuyler Academy at 676 Clinton Avenue. Following a welcome by Mayor Kathy Sheehan and Planning Director Chris Spencer, consultant Kevin Dwarka of Kevin Dwarka Land Use & Economic Consulting walked the attendees through an existing conditions assessment of West Hill and West End. The group then headed outside for a tour around the neighborhood to observe real life examples of various issues and opportunities related to four topic areas- Neighborhood Economic Development, Housing, Environment & Community Life, and Transportation & Mobility. Following the tour, the group reconvened to brainstorm and prioritize strategies to address the issues observed and discussed. The day ended with participants voting for their top three favorite strategies.
