Thank you to those who made it out to the 2018 Annual Meeting! It’s always a special experience having the opportunity to have all of our stakeholders together in the same room, while being able to honor the hard work that they do every single day to make the Campus District a great place to live, work, play, and heal. We greatly appreciate your dedication to the neighborhood.
Letter from Campus District, Inc. Executive Director, Mark Lammon:
It’s been a whole year; I still have a hard time believing it because it feels like just yesterday I became Executive Director of the Campus District. In that time I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to get to know the diverse group of people and organizations that call this neighborhood home. This year’s annual meeting theme is ‘Patchwork’. What better way to describe our neighborhood than the patches of a quilt strengthened in their bind to one another.
It was an exciting year for the organization. None of which would have been possible if not for the strong foundation built by my predecessor, Bobbi Reichtell, who retired after over five years at the helm of this organization. When I took the wheel in February 2018, we launched our Superior Arts District Ambassador Service. The Ambassadors have been out on the streets ever since ensuring that the northern part of the Campus District remains as clean and safe as possible. We also completed the Bridge that Bridges project on the East 22nd Street overpass of I-90 which brought together stakeholders from all walks of life to discuss race and equity. And we are continuing those same conversations through our Task Force process by empowering the community to develop our future priorities.
I want to thank the entire community, the Board of Directors, and the staff of the Campus District for being such a welcoming community. Your passion for this neighborhood is felt every day.
