The City of Topeka is launching a new initiative to bring together leaders from neighborhoods citywide, in an effort to build a stronger Topeka community. The City’s Department of Neighborhood Relations is extending an invitation to one representative from each Topeka neighborhood to participate in a quarterly Neighborhood Leaders Roundtable. The first will be 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, in Building A at Washburn Tech, 5724 S.W. Huntoon.
This will be the first time the City has invited all 92 Topeka neighborhoods to come together. The goal of the roundtable discussion is to provide a space where neighborhood leaders across the city can discuss, network and brainstorm with one another and with government officials about how to tackle some of the difficult issues facing our community.
The roundtable will involve a discussion of the 2016 Neighborhood Relations Initiatives, information about your non-profit status as a neighborhood, details on the City’s community policing efforts, a roundtable discussion and a mini-resource fair.
We want every neighborhood to have a seat at the roundtable. If you want to be that representative or can provide me with another person to represent your neighborhood I would greatly appreciate it. Please provide me with a response by Oct. 21. I can be reached at 785-368-4470 or
Thank You! Roundtable_10-24-15.pdf
