Kashmere Gardens Kicks Off Phase 2 Complete Communities
The first of five Phase 2 Complete Communities Kick-Off meetings was held in Kashmere Gardens on September 10. Planners worked with residents, business owners, non-profits, faith-based institutions and schools to identify opportunities for improving services and amenities to make Kashmere Gardens a Complete Community.
Participants were guided through hands-on activities to identify important places in the neighborhood, challenges they would like to see addressed, and areas where they would like to see improvements.
Additional meetings are planned for the other new Complete Communities. For more information, click here.
