“TOGETHER WE SERVE” 2019 Neighborhood Summit set for Saturday at Fort Bliss

The Community and Human Development Neighborhood Services Division invites the public to the 15th annual Neighborhood Summit, “Together We Serve” at the Centennial Banquet and Conference Center at Fort Bliss.

“It’s a place for this community to come together to access their government,” said Director of Community and Human Development Nicole Ferrini. “We want to inspire El Pasoans to come out, be excited and inspired by what’s going on in our city.”

The summit will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 14; speakers will include Mayor Dee Margo  and Garrison Commander Colonel Stuart James.

This free event, hosted in partnership with the El Paso Neighborhood Coalition, provides educational workshops, exhibits and recognitions to Neighborhood Associations who demonstrated exemplary leadership.

Residents have the opportunity to build networks among neighborhood associations from across the city, including Fort Bliss, and gather inspiration to help improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods.

Workshop topics include Public Safety Bond, Fort Bliss, and El Paso Electric and Smart Communities Initiatives.

Visitors can use “Ease of Access” at Pena Gate (off the TX-601 Spur; exit 22 for Sergeant Major Blvd – keep left at the fork) from 7:45 am-9:45 am with a valid state or government-issued ID.

Registration will begin the day of the event at 8:00 a.m. and a complimentary lunch will be served to the first 250 residents.

Guests who donate an adult or children’s jacket or sweater to benefit The Salvation Army will receive a raffle ticket.
