Central Neighborhood Community Unity Meeting

Central Neighborhood leaders and the City of Columbia will host a Community Unity meeting in the Central Neighborhood on Thursday, May 17, from 6 to 7:45 p.m. at Progressive Missionary Baptist Church, 702 Banks Ave. The meeting is open to all residents in the Central Neighborhood.

The Community Unity meeting is a continuation of previous meetings held in the Central Neighborhood earlier this year where residents identified goals they would like to achieve. Tim Teddy, director of the City’s Community Development Department, will facilitate the meeting with the assistance of Columbia Police Department Community Outreach Unit officers.

Agenda topics include:

  • Public and utility box art; and
  • Sgt. Robert Fox on the Community-Oriented Policing project

Neighborhood meetings have grown out of the City’s 2016-2019 Strategic Plan and are dedicated to making Columbia the best place for everyone to live, work, learn and play. The Strategic Plan is focused on five priority areas: social equity, economy, public safety, infrastructure and operational excellence.
