When will we start using NeighborLinKs?

WHEN                                                        

This is when

This could be the creative opportunity we’ve waited for.

A small group from our neighborhood would like to assemble a number of imaginative folks to discuss unique ideas and initiatives that would ideally be part of “Carrollton: 2020.” This group would pursue the idea of “growing Carrollton” in the belief that the time is right for a neighborhood community to take responsibility for its own destiny in new and creative ways.

As well, it is felt if a neighborhood can develop a genuinely exciting and highly creative plan for its own “transformational growth” in life quality and sustainability, the attention and support of necessary organizations and individuals to make it happen will seamlessly appear.

By new and creative ways is meant, for instance, organizing a totally transparent, for-profit neighborhood business corporation that develops and sponsors entrepreneurial enterprises whose profits are devoted to neighborhood development, and perhaps even a cash bonus for community residents someday.

But that’s just part of it: In fact this small group wants to set up a larger group that develops strategies for complex, comprehensive development of all aspects of neighborhood life – education, security, job creation, housing, child and elder care, recreation and (community based) commercial services – all without losing even a tiny bit of the charm and character that has taken over a hundred years to build and makes us what we are.

  1. So, when? Great idea but from the post it is difficult to understand what the next step is.
