Neigh­bor­hood Associations

Neigh­bor­hood Associations

In order for neigh­bor­hoods to flour­ish, we must all val­ue the stew­ard­ship process of our home town.

Neigh­bor­hood asso­ci­a­tions in the City of Mar­i­on focus on a geo­graph­ic area with­in our city and aim to Build and main­tain a wel­com­ing neigh­bor­hood.” This vision includes mobi­liz­ing the area to com­mu­ni­cate not only with each oth­er but also with city offi­cials and resources who can help them achieve a shared vision. Many neigh­bor­hoods are host to res­i­den­tial, com­mer­cial and pub­lic spaces. Asso­ci­a­tions locate and uti­lize all the assets of a neigh­bor­hood to build and main­tain the area as a wel­com­ing space for all. 

It takes inten­tion­al­i­ty to main­tain a wel­com­ing neigh­bor­hood. Form­ing a new asso­ci­a­tion or join­ing the work of the cur­rent asso­ci­a­tion gives you a means to ral­ly togeth­er towards an inten­tion­al vision. Each neigh­bor­hood is unique in its vision for the area. By bring­ing the group togeth­er and focus­ing on this vision, neigh­bors can pri­or­i­tize projects, pro­pose solu­tions to con­cerns, and imple­ment plans for main­tain­ing the unique life of the neighborhood. 

Neigh­bor­hoods usu­al­ly orga­nize to:

  • Build a sense of com­mu­ni­ty among neighbors
  • Address neigh­bor­hood concerns
  • Pro­vide the neigh­bor­hood with an effec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion link to gov­ern­ment offi­cials and oth­er influ­en­tial groups
  • Empow­er res­i­dents to build and main­tain their neigh­bor­hood through reac­tive and proac­tive projects
  • Improve the qual­i­ty of life for their neighborhood
