Community Development to host Listening Sessions

Regarding 2019 Annual Action Plan

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Community Development Division (CDD) will conduct three public meetings the purpose of obtaining citizens’ views on affordable housing and community development needs in the City.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
