Neigh­bor­hood Associations

Neigh­bor­hood Associations

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

The neigh­bor­hood asso­ci­a­tions with­in the City of Mar­i­on encour­age all home­own­ers, renters, busi­ness own­ers, com­mer­cial build­ing own­ers to stew­ard their homes, build­ings, parks, roads, side­walks, and oth­er pub­lic spaces for all to have a safe and wel­com­ing place for cur­rent res­i­dents, vis­i­tors, and poten­tial future res­i­dents and busi­ness to enter into. Form­ing a new asso­ci­a­tion or join­ing the cur­rent one in your area gives you a means to ral­ly togeth­er to stew­ard your area in col­lab­o­ra­tion with each oth­er and the city of Marion.

It takes inten­tion­al­i­ty to main­tain a wel­com­ing, strong neigh­bor­hood. A neigh­bor­hood asso­ci­a­tion is a group of res­i­dents, busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tives, and oth­er inter­est­ed cit­i­zens who devote their time and ener­gy to improve and enhance a well-defined geo­graph­ic area. Neigh­bor­hood Asso­ci­a­tions pro­vide a place to meet neigh­bors, exchange ideas, pri­or­i­tize projects, pro­pose solu­tions, and imple­ment plans for the neigh­bor­hood. Orga­niz­ing a neigh­bor­hood brings peo­ple togeth­er to form a col­lec­tive, unit­ed voice.

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 improve their neighborhood
  • Take on projects for the bet­ter­ment of their neigh­bor­hood environment
  • Improve the qual­i­ty of life their neighborhood
