Community Leadership Institute, Cleaner and Greener Campaign

TRIP recently brought a group of North Central community leaders to a national Community Leaders Institute in Kansas City, MO.  The four-day NeighborWorks America–sponsored conference attracted more than a thousand residents who are committed to improving their neighborhoods, Troy’s team is now putting that new knowledge to work in North Central!  Partnering with School 2, they recently kicked-off a Cleaner and Greener Community Campaign.  The campaign will focus on beautifying the neighborhood through arts projects and anti-litter efforts including a mural along the front of School 2, raised flower beds, and painted trashcans.
