Jamaica Plain’s third annual “State of Our Neighborhood” forum is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The annual “community conversation” expects to draw more than 250 residents and local elected officials to the Kennedy Elementary School from 6 to 9 p.m. “to discuss the state of our neighborhood and share our visions for JP in ten or fifteen years time,” according to an announcement.

State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz, State Representatives Jeffrey Sanchez, Liz Malia and Russell Holmes, and City Councilors Felix G. Arroyo and Matt O’Malley are expected to attend, the announcement said.

The meeting is expected to focus on neighborhood-level topics, including: youth issues, urban agriculture, transportation, education, senior resources, affordable housing and businesses.

The forum is co-sponsored by a slew of local organizations and businesses.

“This annual forum has led to monthly potlucks and movie nights, and helped spark the Boston Bean, the Community Resilience Measures, the Egleston Farmers Market, the Sustainable Fashion Show, and other projects led by neighbors,” organizers said.

A “snow date” has been set for Feb. 26.
