City of Largo Hosting Neighborhood Partner Roundtable to Build Leaders
Partnership Program has announced a new opportunity for residents
who are trying to get to know their neighbors and improve their
neighborhood. The first Neighborhood Roundtable will be held on
Wednesday, March 21, 2012, at 6:00 PM in the Community Room of Largo
City Hall. The event is open to
registered and non-registered members of the Neighborhood Partnership
The theme of this roundtable discussion stems from Largo's Strategic Plan Neighborhood Principle. Results from the neighborhood concerns survey and neighborhood partner interviews indicate an interest in building up the leadership capacity of our local community association to ensure their long term viability and to encourage more participation. To meet these needs, the City is building a Neighborhood Partner Network. The network will consist of neighborhood association representatives and residents. Associations and individuals from across the City are signing up as Neighborhood Partners, and together they are creating the first forum for neighborhood interests in Largo.
The roundtable will be led by Mr. Richard Powell, a motivational speaker, coach and team builder at Renaissance Coaching. Mr. Powell has graciously agreed to lead the discussion and will provide some suggested measures to encourage participation and build leadership skills for our local community associations and neighborhood groups. An interactive group discussion will follow Mr. Powell's presentation. For more information about the Neighborhood Roundtable please visit this link on our website.
