Neighborhood Support

Neighborhood associations are formed by people who live near each other and come together to improve neighborhood amenities, organize activities, and take action to make their neighborhood an even better place to live. Creating a neighborhood association and getting to know your neighbors through meetings and events brings about many benefits:

  • You gain friends. Seeing familiar faces on your walk and chatting with a neighbor over the fence creates happiness and long-lasting friendships.
  • You have someone who has your back. Your neighbor may be able to lend you a tool for your yardwork or get in touch if they notice you left your garage door open by accident.
  • You get the neighborhood you want. Many hands make light work in planning a block party or cleaning up trash at your neighborhood park.

Get Involved

Find your local neighborhood association and contact the president to get involved in your neighborhood. If your neighborhood doesn't have an established association, consider starting one. Fill out the interest form and City staff will help you get started.
