SALISBURY — Salisbury City Council and city staff will host the seventh Chit, Chat & Chew on May 30 at 5:15 p.m., at Grace United Methodist Church, 846 Faith Road. 

The community town hall will be held for residents in the U.S. 52 area of the city, which encompasses neighborhoods such as Oakland Heights, Brentwood Acres, Corbin Acres, Corbin Hills, Drummond Village and Brittany Downs. 

Dinner will be provided, and the town hall will start at 5:45 p.m.

To allow residents to have targeted discussions with City Council members, a map of nine areas was created, sectioning neighborhoods based upon natural barriers, roadways, population distribution and median income.

Some neighborhoods have different needs and concerns than others, such as code enforcement, leaf collection and road condition concerns. Town halls will be held in each of the nine areas every other month, although residents throughout the city are welcome at any Chit, Chat & Chew. 

“Recognizing that each neighborhood in our city has its own set of challenges and triumphs,” said Anne Little, Salisbury human relations manager. “Chit, Chat & Chew is an opportunity to have some of those challenges addressed or to tout their community accomplishments, and perhaps provide support to others in the room. This event is not only an opportunity for Salisburians to interact with their elected officials, but also with their neighbors in an informal setting.” 

For more information on Chit, Chat & Chew, contact Little at anne.little@salisburync.gov or call 704-638-5218.
