Are you curious about our local government and how speaking up can make a difference? You’re in luck. The City of Charleston’s Neighborhood Services is holding a free seminar next month on navigating Charleston.
Here’s some context: Neighborhood Services uses education and outreach to promote equal access to resources, civic engagement, and community decision-making in the Holy City.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 20. The two-hour seminar will be held in the public meeting room at 2 George St. at 5:30 p.m. and will feature refreshments.
The meeting will cover:
- What services and programs the city provides
- How the city interacts with other agencies to solve problems
- How decisions are made and ordinances are passed
- How you can get involved
Register here for the free seminar. Parking is available for $1 per 30 minutes at the Gaillard Center parking garage on Alexander Street.
