Good Neighbors:  A Community Conversation to Strengthen City-College Connections and Relationshipsons and Relationships

In a few weeks, the Keene College/City Commission is hosting a guided community conversation and we want you to be there! The conversation was designed by members of the Commission and community stakeholders, in partnership with New Hampshire Listens, a civic engagement initiative of the University of New Hampshire.  It will be an opportunity to take time to get informed, hear important priorities, and consider the decisions that impact, represent, and affect us all. 

Conversations will be in small groups with a trained facilitator - you will be asked about your experiences, what you think are key issues that impact our community, and to listen to others who may have differing views. We need everyone who has a stake in Keene's success to help shape the future of our community - so please join us! Event details and a link to register are provided below.
