About 100 people are gathering at McCamly Plaza Hotel this week for the start of a three-year initiative to address social issues in Battle Creek. Those at the downtown hotel through Thursday are being immersed in the community-building philosophy of The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation, a Maryland-based nonprofit with a stated mission of helping people and organizations improve their communities.
