(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington's Housing and Neighborhood Development Department is hosting a workshop called "Neighborhood Heart and Soul," led by Phil Stafford on Saturday, October 24, from 9 a.m. to noon in the City Council Chambers, at City Hall, 401 N. Morton St.

This free workshop is for neighborhood residents who want to explore the treasures that drew residents to their neighborhoods and look into future neighborhood projects that will keep residents there. The workshop will include activities and methods that help residents establish what they value, want to preserve, and want to add to help shape each resident's own neighborhood.

Registration is not required, but if you register by Monday, October 12, a map of your neighborhood or area may be provided as a tool to work with as you explore the array of possibilities for projects in your neighborhood.

If you do not live in an area that has a neighborhood association, you are welcome to attend to learn more about how HAND can help you organize a neighborhood association. Information about all the programs, services and grants available for neighborhoods will be available at this workshop.

Phil Stafford is a cultural anthropologist and national leader in the age-friendly community movement. In November, he will be honored in Washington, D.C. for his work by Partners for Livable Communities. He will then travel to Knoxville, TN to deliver a keynote at the Tennessee Livability Summit.

To register for this free workshop or to inquire if you live within the boundaries of a neighborhood association, please contact Vickie Provine, Program Manager at or call (812) 349-3505.
