Winder officials and regional planners have scheduled a meeting in early November to find out how four older, but centrally located, neighborhoods could be revitalized.
The city government, the Winder Housing Authority and the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission are sponsoring the 6:30 p.m. meeting on Nov. 4 at White Oak Springs Baptist Church on East New Street just east of downtown.
“We want to hear from people who live in the neighborhoods,” said Hasco W. Craver IV, program manager for the regional commission’s local government services. “We are looking for suggestions from the community concerning how to revitalize and rehabilitate their residential areas, and we want to know what’s broken. We want them to tell us what’s broken.”
