Community Non-Profit Spotlight: Strawberry Hill Neighborhood Association

  • Mission: The mission of the Strawberry Hill Neighborhood Association is to bring together the neighbors and residents in the Strawberry Hill area of Stamford
  • Project Funding Purpose: Funding was awarded to support planting trees along Strawberry Hill.
  • Pickleball America: One of the key economic development priorities of my administration is business attraction, and we were thrilled to welcome Pickleball America to Stamford last week. Pickleball America will be the largest pickleball venue in the country and will add vibrancy to our downtown while serving as a destination for the region.
  • Senior Housing Facilities Listening Tour: This month I began my listening tour of senior housing facilities in partnership with the Mayor’s Advisory Council on Aging. Last week I visited Maple View Towers, and it was great to hear from residents about the issues that matter and impact them the most.
