Egan and Luke took over briefly for Hannah and did some historical information about the history of NRP I and NRP II.

Discussion ensued about the five goals suggested in the strategic plan. Hannah and Luke fielded questions from the community.

Luke will be providing all the info from the surveys within 7-10 days.

Hannah questioned the crowd about whether we thought our goals were achievable.

Vigorous discussed ensued around the topic of hiring a community organizer. Specifically, we discussed hiring someone from the neighborhood and using local resources versus hiring an outside professional.
