Good Neighbor Guide

Good neighbors know each other by sight. They check in on residents with special needs. They maintain their properties and help neighbors maintain theirs. They are friendly to all of their neighbors. They participate; they work together to plan regular events, neighborhood improvement projects, and other activities that provide opportunities for positive interactions.

Social interactions are critical to building a strong community. Block parties, activity clubs, festivals, and parades are just a few ways to meet neighbors. It is also an excellent opportunity to welcome new neighbors into the community. The more often a neighborhood gets together for fun, the more unified they will be when issues arise.
