"City-Parish cannot take on improving Quality of Place alone. These issues require the commitment and involvement of the community as well. My Neighborhood Engagement Hub will house all of our community and neighborhood interventions to improve Quality of Place. There are opportunities for trainings, clean ups, and connecting with City-Parish to implement change on their block."
