TOPIC FOR THIS MEETING
The number one goal of Navigating Newburgh is getting fabulous people into this city’s remarkable vacant homes.
I have invited some “regular people,” all of whom would love to own a historic home in Newburgh, to be guest speakers. I believe our discussion will reveal some very serious roadblocks that are keeping these hard-working people from their goal. I feel very strongly that home ownership is the best weapon against rapid gentrification. My family and I would not be where we are today if we had not been able to buy our home in Brooklyn when we did. Home ownership, and the major renovations that come with it, is not without a lot of risk. Hopefully together we can navigate and identify the challenges, and how to overcome them.
Let’s crowdsource solutions to home ownership and restoration.
I invite any and all individuals who are in a similar position (or can share their success or failures) attempting to build the dream in Newburgh to be a guest speaker. Please speak with me or contact my assistant Hazel at firstname.lastname@example.org
