Griffith Neighborhood Spotlight
Griffith Neighborhood Spotlight (GNS)
Over the past year 2016, GNS members and community volunteers have worked diligently to develop a "Quality of Life Plan" for our town, our community , our “One Neighborhood”.
This year, 2017, we are in the process of implementing that plan which includes these (2) of (4) Goals and Objectives;
- Improving the Communications within our Community, and;
- Creating a Brand, a common unifying identity, about and for our community and its residents.
In order to both improve communication about what's going on in Griffith, and begin creating a brand for our town, we're looking for honest feedback from residents and non-residents alike.
