    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. We provide resources to help new neighborhood associations organize and to revitalize existing ones.

    We want to make sure we are reaching you. If you are an association leader and you don't see your organization listed below, 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 training. Be sure that the person you list as your communications contact is someone who can disseminate information to your neighborhood on a regular basis.

    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, 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.

    Would your group like to meet at a parks facility or community center?

    City recognized Neighborhood Associations and Community Clubs are invited to use one of our wonderful indoor parks facilities once per year, with no fee. Facilities use can be booked up to 60 days prior to an event. There is no room rental fee, but if use is after hours, a room monitor will be required.

    This is a great chance for a community gathering during the evening or rainy time of year. Based on your neighborhood location, the following facilities could be available:

    • Bellevue Botanical Garden
    • Crossroads Community Center
    • Highland Community Center
    • North Bellevue Community Center
    • Northwest Arts Center
    • South Bellevue Community Center
    • Lewis Creek Visitor Center
    • Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center
