After successfully campaigning to add two new skateparks to City Heights, including a $1.75 million park to break ground in the summer, Mid-City Community Advocacy Network is looking for new issues to tackle.
Mid-City CAN also is celebrating five years of partnership with the Building Healthy Communities Initiative, a 10 year, $1 billion effort to change the way that health happens in California, which focuses on 14 communities, including City Heights.
And on March 12, Mid-City Community Advocacy Network relaunched its Networking Council meeting in a new format.
The goal of the Networking Council is to bring residents and organizations in City Heights together to advocate for change, said Coordinating Council Member Trinh Le at the March 12 meeting. It is in this spirit that the Networking Council was reformatted -- to be more accessible.
