A community conversation will be held Thursday evening to discuss mental health issues across the Pikes Peak region.

Food for Thought and the National Alliance on Mental Illness will host the discussion at 6 p.m. at Colorado College's Packard Hall, near the intersection of Cache La Poudre Street and Cascade Avenue. The event will begin with a panel discussion, followed by small-group discussions at 7:15 p.m.

The event aims to offer people a chance to voice their concerns about any gaps in mental health care facing the region, as well as to recommend any ideas for tackling those problems.

Cynthia Lowen will read from "The Cloud that Contained Lightning," her book about Robert Opehnheimer, father of the atomic bomb. It was a 2012 National Poetry Series selection. A Colorado College alumna, she is co-producer of the film "Bully." The free public event is at 7 p.m. Thursday, Gates Common Room, third floor, Palmer Hall, Colorado College 1025 N. Cascade Ave.

The Colorado Springs City Council, as the Colorado Springs Utilities board of directors, will meet in a day-long retreat to discuss its utilities strategy. The meeting is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday at Glen Eyrie, Pink House, 3820 N 30th St.

The Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance will host its first organizational progress briefing of 2014 for its member investors and individuals interested in learning more about the Business Alliance. President and CEO Joe Raso will discuss updates and new developments. The briefing will take place from 8-9:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Antlers Hilton Hotel, 4 S. Cascade Ave. in downtown Colorado Springs. There is no charge for the event, but registration is required. Go to www.coloradospringbusinessalliance.com and click on "events" and then "upcoming events" to register.

What's happening with the pace of homebuilding in the Colorado Springs area? On Monday, the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department is expected to release a report on single-family home construction that took place in February. The El Paso County Public Trustee's Office, meanwhile, also is expected to release its monthly report on foreclosure activity.
