Queerlective Hosts Community Conversation on Manchester Street Art for Public Safety Project
Manchester, NH, January 15, 2024 - Queerlective, in partnership with the Conservation Law Foundation and funded by the Endowment for Health's Environmental Justice grant, is excited to announce a community conversation regarding the Manchester Street Art for Public Safety project. This pivotal event is scheduled for Thursday, January 25th, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM in the Central High School (CHS) Cafeteria, accessible via the Lowell/Maple St entrance across from Dominos.
The project, set to transform Corey Square and its vicinity, focuses on creative placemaking to revolutionize pedestrian safety. It goes beyond mere aesthetic enhancement, embodying principles of environmental justice and community engagement.
"Involving the community is crucial in shaping projects that directly impact their daily lives. This conversation is an opportunity for the people who live in the surrounding area to have a say in creating a safe, engaging, and vibrant environment," says Randall Nielsen of Queerlective.
The event will include a presentation by Plan NH, sharing their recommendations from the planning charrette conducted last summer. This will be followed by an open forum, inviting attendees to share their insights and ideas.
"We look forward to hearing the diverse perspectives of our community members. Their contributions are vital in ensuring the project not only meets safety standards but also reflects the identity and pride of Manchester," added Nielsen.
