This month’s meeting will concentrate on meeting the new owner of the White Church at 23rd and Sumner. After earlier hearing from a basketball group and a yoga program, both of whom couldn’t get the financing apparently, we will finally hear from Cerimon House who is definitely purchasing the building and wrapping up the City’s approval process by mid-October. They plan to open a variety of community-oriented programs and activities that they describe as “creating settings for artistic expression and education and fostering an environment for non-denominational ceremonies and celebrations.” All of these are supposed to be “walk-to” events that won’t require neighborhood parking problems. Come to hear what they plan and to ask questions.
We will also talk about the City’s response to noise problems associated with the church at 7015 NE 23rd that has festered for years and about the coal train response from the forum at NECN in late August.
Hope that you can attend. We will limit the meeting to one hour or less.
