During the summer of 2021, Neighbor Link and city resources such as production of a banner and printed flyers will be provided to neighborhoods hosting gatherings. Neighborhoods are encouraged to monitor state and county health guidelines. Support for neighborhood gatherings will be updated as the state and county update safety guidelines.
We encourage you to continue to find creative ways to stay in touch with your neighbors, especially those most vulnerable, while practicing social distancing.
Neighbor Link, which began in 2009, is designed to bring neighbors together in a spirit of community, service and celebration. They are a good way to encourage and support neighborhood efforts that build healthy, lasting connections. Neighbors who know one another are involved in their community and the city at large, and make a difference to improve the quality of life and safety for all of their residents.
Since the program began, Neighborhood Outreach has assisted with over 300 neighborhood celebrations, which have raised over 3,000 pounds of food and donated hundreds of dollars to charity.
