February Special Events!
State of the Millvale EcoDistrict
Thursday, February 15 at 5:30 PM – 7 PM
Join us on the evening of Thursday, February 15th for an update on the State of the Millvale EcoDistrict!
It has been 2 years since we met to celebrate and recalibrate the EcoDistrict Plan to create Pivot 2.0. Since then, as Millvale has progressed, so has the plan. This is a chance for us to get back together as a community, celebrate the national award winning plan, and think through how we can keep pushing forward for a more sustainable and vibrant Millvale!
As a family friendly community, this is a family friendly event as we welcome children.
Refreshments will be served!
