reNew Kensington - Community Workshop
The workshop was held September 27, 2018.
Community members, leaders and business owners attended this free workshop to work together as one community in creating priorities and action steps to build a stronger and renewable New Kensington for everyone! The workshop included lots of collaborative activities, giveaways, speakers, special guests and free continental breakfast and lunch for all attendees. It was also the starting point for a community-driven planning process related to how sustainability can be implemented in New Kensington.
