One of the most common efforts in any neighborhood is to help improve or beautify their area, which can both strengthen property values and reduce crime. A neighborhood-wide effort can target problem areas and assist in their solution, especially if the issue involves an elderly person or someone who would otherwise have difficulty in that effort on their own. With an organized neighborhood the residents can work more effectively with municipal service providers, like public works, the police department, or others. This makes it easier to communicate with the City to voice concerns, access resources, resolve problems, or take advantage of opportunities.
The entire community is invited to find out what neighborhood organizing is all about, on Thursday, March 15th!
