How well do you know your neighbors?

What could you accomplish by working together?

The City encourages community members to work together in groups to achieve common goals and address problems.  Some neighborhoods may already have a legally binding Homeowners Association (HOA); other self-identified groups can be a resources for residents and businesses in their area and promote greater engagement.

In September 2019, the City Council approved Planning Commission Resolution 19-08, which approved a staff proposal to implement best practices for neighborhood engagement.  As part of that Resolution, the City has compiled a variety of resources to support neighborhoods.

Do you know of a great neighborhood resource?  If so, please tell us about it!
