Join your neighbors for our First Annual “State of J.P.” The President and the Mayor reflect upon the State of our Nation and the State of our City. Let’s talk about the state of Jamaica Plain. What is happening with Hi-Lo Supermarket and food security? What about youth jobs, local business, schools, public safety, housing, transportation, immigration, the environment and other issues facing our neighborhood?
Priorities for the neighborhood will be presented by a diverse panel moderated by Sandee Storey, Editor of the Jamaica Plain Gazette
After the presentation by the panel will be a question and answer session, and an opportunity to gather in small groups of neighbors for discussion on topics you chose
