Becoming a Neighborhood Representative and Joining Neighborhood Watch:
There is a proverb, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” We need to work together to create a safe environment for our families. Organizing a block club is one way to improve your neighborhood. As a Neighborhood Representative, you can voice neighborhood concerns and use group power to influence city government and services, and you can encourage your neighbors to work together on fun activities such as block parties and holiday events.
Becoming active in your neighborhood is vital to maintaining a peaceful, safe and enjoyable area!
To stay active the following is suggested:
• Submit a block map to the Ourstreet Program with the names of people in your block, or as new people move in.
• Hand out alert/information fliers on your block, or recruit another neighborhood watch volunteer to help you.
• Recruit and encourage neighbors to take responsibility for their block, help one another in their neighborhood and to get them to
work cooperatively with each other and the police.
If you are interested in becoming a Neighborhood Representative, please fill out this application and return it to the Ourstreet Program on the 3rd floor of City Hall at 270 River Ave. If you have questions, give Sue Harder a call at 355-3139.
