The Downtown Safety & Services Initiative kicked off on Tuesday, October 1 at New Spire Stages. Community members gathered to learn more about the initiative, meet the co-leads and committee chairs, participate in small group discussions, and share their thoughts and concerns. This initiative is focusing its efforts in the areas of safety, economic opportunity and beautification, while making sure that the most vulnerable in our community have access to the support services they need.
