The roundtable attracted over 175 registrants to discuss the main topic, Quality of Life, with guest speakers Tammie Jackson, Director of Safety & Permits, and Thomas Mulligan, Director of Code Enforcement, along with Code Enforcement’s head of lot abatement, D’Artanian Stovall.  Considerable information was shared, and then the Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office guided attendees through the fun “Blight, Not Blight” exercise where attendees voted with signs whether shared imagery revealed blight.  Many questions were answered during the roundtable’s engaging activity and by the guest speakers during the official Q&A period.
