An active neighborhood association can represent a community voice to the city, and neighbors building relationships with each other are the key to a safe and vibrant community. Each neighborhood has issues and priorities they care most about, and a neighborhood association is the perfect way to share ideas and work for the betterment of the community. Neighborhood Outreach is expanding its level of assistance in helping new neighborhood associations organize and working to revitalize existing ones.
We want to make sure we are reaching you. If you are an association leader, please register your neighborhood association or community club with the city. Providing current contact information on an annual basis assures that your residents don’t miss out on any of our many neighborhood events, forums and trainings. Be sure that the person you list as your communications contact is someone who can disseminate information to your neighborhood on a regular basis.
Neighborhood Organizing Guide
If you need help organizing your neighborhood group, the Neighborhood Organizing Guide will provide valuable resources for you and your community. It includes information on forming a core group, organizing effective meetings, choosing officers, membership recruitment, bylaws and more. Great for new associations or as a refresher for all associations!
If you’ve thought about bringing together neighbors in your area, give us a call and we can help you get started. The “Better Together” program brings together neighborhood associations with a new organizing toolkit, leadership training classes, seed funding and coaching for leaders of associations.
