Residents and business owners from Berkley, Huntington Woods, Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge and Royal Oak are invited to participate in the second Woodward 5 Sustainability Open House on Thursday.
The event will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Pleasant Ridge Community Center at 4 Ridge Road. The first open house was held in March.
"We need your help to let us know about nongovernmental, community-based actions which are happening, or should happen, in support of local sustainability," wrote Nina Ignaczak, senior planner at Oakland County Planning & Economic Development Services, a co-facilitator of the event.
The Woodward 5 aims to collectively promote its member communities, located along 6 miles of Woodward Avenue, as a cultural hot spot and desirable place to live in Metro Detroit. It recently completed a community action survey to solicit residents' thoughts on how the five cities can create economic prosperity; improve transportation, energy efficiency and the environment; foster arts and culture; and more.
