Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett is getting back out in the community to host a series of neighborhood summits.
The first summit was Wednesday night in District Three at Terre Haute North High School. District Three encompasses much of the north east side of town, but residents from any area are welcome to come out to talk about issues facing their neighborhood.
Mayor Bennett has been hosting these summits for six years now, and he says he'll continue to hold them because it gives residents a chance to run their questions and concerns by him. "Sometimes it's funding, sometimes it's the resources, sometimes it's things that are out of our control and we can't solve the problem, but at least they get the whole story and then we can work on getting it resolved,” Bennett says.
A complete list of upcoming neighborhood summits is below. All summits begin at 6 p.m.
