A highlight of the conference was an open workshop for all attendees presented by staff members from the nationally known Study Circles Resource Center. Attendees experienced tours to varied neighborhoods (historic, NUSA award-winner neighborhood community center), recycling train station, and of course, the giant electric star on top of Mill Mountain. More exciting, the tours were made on old, historic renovated busses. All left energized, full of ideas for the survival of their neighborhoods for the 21st century.
