Rallying community forces for a proposed neighborhood housing corporation and worker corps, Roger L. Porter, president of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association, last night called for a strong turnout from the group to attend the city council’s budget hearing 7:30 p.m. March 23 in the city council chambers.

The association is seeking $31,200 for financing a group of workers and part-time secretary, and $227,500 for funding a nonprofit neighborhood housing corporation.

Porter addressed more than 50 persons at the Trinity United Methodist Church, 620 Armour, and discussed benefits to the community from the project.
