Residential households and businesses all over Emerson-Garfield have begun receiving neighborhood mailers over the past few days. They look like this:
Many of us found out about the neighborhood council and its activities through print mailings (like the sadly defunct West Central Community Newspaper), and it was important to make sure that we continued to spread the word about how to get involved. The more people who take a stake in this neighborhood, the better it will be for all of us.
Normally, the EGNC doesn’t have the money to cover the costs of a neighborhood-wide mailing like this one, which is why they aren’t sent out more regularly. Steps are being taken to increase the frequency of mailings in the future, but there are still limitations to what can be done with the available funding.
