The Value of Establishing an NRG

  • A recognized neighborhood has a clearer voice with which to advocate for its benefit. 

  • Neighborhood teams improve the communication between the city and its residents.

  • Your neighborhood will have a clear, organized way to speak to city government with a guarantee you will be heard. You will have a tool for relating directly to both your elected city council and city service areas. 

  • You will connect with your neighbors, and develop opportunities to share viewpoints and resources.
