A Neighborhood association is a group of residents, business representatives and other interested citizens that 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 issues
- Provide the neighborhood with an effective communication link to government officials and other influential groups
- Empower residents to improve their neighborhood
The City of Marion is fortunate to have over Twenty-Seven Neighborhood Associations. These associations cover much of Marion, however, there is still room for new association to form. To start a Neighborhood Association in your area, please call Larry Richardson at 765-662-9931.
