The sixth annual Jamaica Plain State of our Neighborhood community gathering will be held Thursday night, April 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. at John F. Kennedy Elementary School 7 Bolster St.
The community conversation will address three separate topics important to the community: affordable housing, food justice, and arts and culture. Already, three meetings were held this winter to discuss these areas leading up to the State of the Neighborhood, organized by the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Council, Egleston Square Main Street and the Hyde Square Task Force, respectively.
The meeting is free and open to the public. A number of elected officials are expected to be in attendance. Light refreshments will be served. Those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP on the event's Facebook page. Jamaica Plain News will have coverage of the evening.
