Metro West Community Development Organization, MetroHealth Invite Residents to Give Input on Clark-Fulton Master Plan
Residents, business owners, and people who work or play in Clark-Fulton are invited to share their feedback on a comprehensive plan for the community.
This plan is the result of a year of resident and stakeholder engagement. It seeks to create a holistic vision for the Clark-Fulton Community centered on five guiding principles: Equity and Wellbeing, Connected and Inclusive, Identity and Expression, Resilient and Sustainable, and Togetherness.
“The past year has taken a toll on our neighborhood and residents, as it has on people across the world,” says Ricardo Leon, Executive Director of Metro West Community Development Organization. “In spite of these challenges, our neighborhood has been hard at work planning for what comes next for our community. We’re so proud of our culture, our resiliency, and our ability to look towards the future, even in the midst of the pandemic. We hope that folks will come out to share their input, but also just to be together again after so much time apart.”
