How will you benefit by joining the PPNN?
 
You will receive a regular newsletter with information on:
 
Social Networking
 
How many of your neighbors do you know? Through the PPNN residents can be informed of social activities happening right in the neighborhood – block parties, events at ECAC, Sankofa, MentoringWorks2.
 
Volunteer Involvement
 
As busy as many of us are, most people have at least one hour a week to give to the community. Organizations such as MentoringWorks2 and ECAC can put that hour to good use. Get involved with the youth, help out our children’s programs, help fix up the ECAC community center. The PPNN will keep you informed of the ways you can contribute to the community.
 
Civic Engagement
 
Over the next few years, major development will come to Georgia Ave. Don’t let developers dictate our neighborhood’s future. What type of businesses do you want to see? How much affordable housing? What type of liquor establishments do we want and how many? Make your voice count. Through the PPNN you will be informed of plans, important meetings, timetables and other decisions made affecting the Pleasant Plains community.
 
Historical Preservation
 
Work on the Georgia Avenue/Pleasant Plains Heritage Trail is underway and will soon document the rich history of this area with signs from the Shaw to the Petworth Metro Stations. Do you have a story to tell? Photos to share? Through the PPNN find out how you can be a part of preserving the history of the community
