"Mayor Dave Bing’s administration will provide an overview of The Detroit Works Project’s short-term strategy to community members during the upcoming Detroit Police Department Community Relations Meetings in the month of September.

“It’s important for us to meet with residents where they live to share the results of the Neighborhood Analysis and explain how the short-term action strategy of the Detroit Works Project will impact our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Bing. “It will be a great opportunity for citizens to learn about the short-term strategy and get answers to any questions they may have about the project.”

The schedule is as follows:

September 7: Eastern located at 5555 Conner, The Samaritan Center @ 7 p.m.
