9809895a-984e-4b63-9e3b-5f5beaf47b96In an effort to better focus community development resources to address conditions of poverty within our community, the City of Lodi’s Neighborhood Services Division is beginning a process to establish a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area in 2016.  The premise of a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) is that a concentrated investment of resources in a limited impact area can have a substantial impact for a targeted revitalization area. The designation of a NRSA provides benefits for administering Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding in the targeted area.  It also encourages public and private investment in the community, and builds stronger relationships with neighborhood stakeholders including residents, businesses, nonprofit organizations, elected officials, law enforcement, and faith organizations that have a chance to find out that their individual interests often coincide.

Our local residents, representatives from local community-based organizations, and local service providers are all invited to attend a public meeting that is being facilitated by the Lodi Improvement Committee.  The meeting is scheduled for 6pm on Tuesday, November 10, 2015, and will be held at the Carnegie Forum – Council Chambers, located at 305 W. Pine Street.
The purpose of the meeting is to start the process of identifying the strengths within our community, listening to the people of the community and empowering them to make sustainable improvements to themselves, their families and the entire community.

Spanish-language translators will be present for the meeting.  Additional translation services can be provided upon request.
