Neighborhood Engagement

06/17/2013 – 12/31/2019

By 2019, 50% of households, who were not in an organized neighborhood in 2013, will have organized neighborhood associations, HOA's, Councils or other leadership/engagement groups with whom the City can liaison

Description

This strategic result focuses on the creation of liaisons within neighborhoods in an effort to increase communication lines between the City and its citizens. Our approach was to map the area with an organized groups in 2013. We then calculate the households in the unorganized area and based the strategic result and its tracking on 50% of that number. The word "identified" created some confusion. While everyone lives in a neighborhood, some have a stronger sense of identity than others.  Staff work with groups to establish neighborhood boundaries, goals and leadership. This becomes the basis for mapping areas and identifying how we make progress toward completing this result.

Data is gathered utilizing a GIS map of organized neighborhoods in 2013. Each year a new map is created and compared to the original to note the percent change.

Significance

Strong neighborhoods are vital to the success of the city. Organized neighborhoods have a higher ability to rebound from disasters and help neighbors in need. City Council and staff understand the importance of creating and implementing open lines of communication with citizens. Establishing neighborhood liaisons provides a solid conduit for ongoing two-way communication.
