Chesterfield County’s Sustain Our Communities Committee (SOCC) conducted successful “Empowering Neighborhood Forums” last month at Manchester Middle School. Over 100 county residents received a wealth of useful information to assist them with revitalizing their own communities.
Workshop sessions featured crime prevention, fighting blight, code compliance, aging in place, home owner associations, and increasing curb appeal to prepare your home for sale. Those in attendance visited many exhibitors whose focus was to educate residents on ways to strengthen and revitalize neighborhoods and communities.
SOCC also held an awards ceremony celebrating and recognizing the accomplishments of over 16 volunteers and organizations from across the county who work tirelessly to enhance the quality of life in their communities.
