The Lents Neighborhood Association Livability Committee has been hard at work organizing a Town Hall to focus on a host of livability concerns in Lents ranging from inequity in taxes to the impact of the housing crisis on our community. We are seeking your input and participation. This will be an opportunity to ask questions and problem solve with your city Commissioners. It will be a moderated event and we ask that you pre-submit questions, concerns, solutions for the Mayor and Commissioners to us at-Livabilitycommittee@gmail.com. We hope to see you there. This is an important opportunity for our community to come together and be heard.
