Building Community, One Block at a Time
Good neighborhoods are those where neighbors work together on common issues and look out for each other. Block leaders take extra steps to connect neighbors and build community -- making our neighborhoods safer, more harmonious places to live.
The Block Leader Program teaches residents how to get to know their neighbors and to organize activities so neighbors can more easily communicate. Block leaders are vital links between City Hall and the neighborhoods -- and they gain the inside track on neighborhood development and activities.
