2. Front yard redevelopment

The shared Old Y/Beltline Fitness front yard will be redeveloped this summer. CommunityWise is working hard to minimize the impact of this project on members. Access to the building will be maintained throughout. Stay tuned for more details to come.


3. Have you heard about CommunityWise’s Asset Mapping Project?

CommunityWise is attempting to map out the collective resources, knowledge, and skills that exist within the membership in the hope of increasing opportunities for collaboration between members. We are using an online form to gather responses from as many people/organizations as possible. We hope to eventually open this data up to all our members in a searchable form, giving everyone a chance to more easily connect with others with available resources, knowledge, and skills that may be of assistance in resourcing your work. To participate in CommunityWise’s Asset Mapping project, go to: http://fluidsurveys.com/s/CWRCassets/
