    • Survey for Mills Neighborhood – Kaitlin created several general survey questions about Mills Neighborhood. We are curious to know what people know about Mills Addition and what people think is missing from the neighborhood as far as businesses and services go. The survey would go out on the MNA facebook group and MNA website.
