BLUE HILL — On Tuesday, April 5, Healthy Peninsula will hold the second organizational meeting of a Blue Hill Friends and Neighbors group at the Blue Hill Congregational Church from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
A light potluck dinner will be held.
During the first organizational meeting held in March, participants formed small groups and participated in a 30-minute Healthy and Safe Blue Hill discussion. Various questions were answered and the group identified five areas of interest to research including: a community recreation facility, increased law enforcement for speeding and unsafe driving issues, improved bike, pedestrian and town safety issues such as the LifeFlight landing area, secured waterfront and land access for working and recreational purposes and a regional public transportation system.
Friends and Neighbors groups were developed by Healthy Peninsula to mobilize community members in peninsula towns to improve the health, safety and quality of life for the town’s people.
Groups have been established in Brooklin, Brooksville, Penobscot and Castine.
