North End Neighbor Up Night

Neighbor Up Night give residents an opportunity to discuss community issues, make information available to government agencies, track responses, and provide feedback on results. 

                         

North End Neighbor Up Night is an opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another on neutral ground, enjoy a meal together, and bring forward issues and ideas related to their neighborhood. It's an example of transformative organizing and transformative convening, where NECIC focuses on bringing community members and agencies together for intensive problem solving to make the North End a better place. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m. at the NECIC office, 134 N. Main St., Mansfield. Contact us for more information.
