Virtual NEDC Meeting — Thurs, May 7, 7 – 8 PM

The Northeast District Council is going to switch our meetings to “Zoom” at least for the time being.  Zoom is an online meeting platform.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday, May 7, from 7 – 8 PM.
Our agenda will simply be to compare notes on how our neighborhoods are doing during the “stay home/stay safe” period and to share any valuable lessons that we’ve learned from this experience.
Everyone is welcome to join, either via Zoom or via phone.
Please use the “Contact” box on this website to email us and get a link for the meeting.
