As President of The Bellefontaine Area Neighborhood Association, I am certainly aware of your needs and goals. Living in central Ohio for most I my life, I am very familiar with your area. I actually played music in a Praise and Worship group at the Glenwood UMC three years ago before I moved to Marion.
Our group is going into the third year with a fair amount of success working toward those same goads.

I would be glad to share what I have learned through working with the various city department to improve our neighborhood. Looks like you are on the right track.
I can be contacted through the web site or email@example.com
