FROM: Ruth Soper, UHNA Co-coordinator
I am hoping several interested University Heights neighbors can attend this event and report back to us. It is for neighborhood associations to network, share ideas about best practices, green initiatives, sustainable communities, neighborhood improvments, etc. - IT IS FREE. I talked to Jon Berg. He encouraged us to send 3-4 people.

Check out for videos about previous events.

Get Neighbor-Powered!
This topical peer-to-peer discussion forum is a follow up event to the 2009 Neighbor Power! gathering where more than 250 Indianapolis residents came together to share ideas about how to make their neighborhoods better places to live, work and play. At Neighbor Power! more than 100 people expressed an interest in continuing a local conversation on particular topics. This "MAIN Event" forum is the second of a series of topical peer-to-peer discussions to network local leaders to one another, highlight good neighborhood work, and inspire further community action.

Explore our newly updated website at Browse 2009 session videos and resources on topics such as abandoned housing, youth engagement, and neighborhood events.

About Neighbor Power!
founded Neighbor Power! in 2009 with the help of a myriad of volunteers. In partnership with Making Connections Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center, we are working to give neighbors access to materials and information presented at the conference, provide networking tools for individuals wishing to continue conversations, and develop future Neighbor Power! gatherings.
