Bellaire-Puritas hosts annual Neighborhood Summit Oct. 18

By Jerry Masek

The Bellaire-Puritas Development Corp. (BPDC) will host the annual Neighborhood Summit from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Robinson G. Jones Elementary School, 4550 W. 150th St. Admission is free and a light meal will be provided.

“Our community is stronger when people participate,” says Ian Heisey, Community Engagement Director at BPDC. “The strongest assets in our community are the people who live and work here. At the summit, people can meet other neighbors who care, connect to resources that are available, learn ways to get involved and stay informed about the strategic plan that BPDC is implementing.”

Residents will hear about the impact of the successful Wraparound Strategy at the R.G. Jones School, and the power of community-school partnerships.

Ward 16 City Councilman Brian Kazy will speak briefly, and community awards will be announced.
