Brooks Village Greenspace Gathering – BIPOC families with infants, toddlers, and school-aged children

Tue, March 12 @ 4:30 pm 6:30 pm

We want to hear from Skyway families and youth about how to use the community greenspace at Brooks Village! Brooks Village is a lush undeveloped 14.3-acre plot of land just north of Grocery Outlet in Skyway. On a section of the property, Skyway Coalition and the Homestead Community Land Trust are working to build up to 55 new homes that give first-time buyers the opportunity to own a home that is affordable to them and remains affordable to future owners.
