Mayor Sarno states, “CDO Tim Sheehan and I want to encourage the residents of our Mason Square, Bay, McKnight, Old Hill, Upper Hill and Maple High-Six Corners neighborhoods to attend these community meetings. This important community outreach session continues my administration’s commitment to all our neighborhoods. Here we seek community input, which plays an intricate role in my administrations 10-year capital plans when reviewing economic development opportunities that are conducive to the neighborhoods and just as important, also enhance the quality of life for our residents and businesses, including exploring all funding opportunities for neighborhood and community projects and initiatives.”
“I want to thank Director of Disaster Recovery and Compliance Tina Quagliato-Sullivan, Deputy Director of Neighborhood Services Ed Whitley and the dedicated staff at Eco Dev for their continued efforts on behalf of all our neighborhoods. They do a tremendous job working with our neighborhood councils to hear their concerns and help advance community projects and initiatives for the betterment of our residents and business community,” added Mayor Sarno.
