It’s no cup of sugar, but consider this resource a gift from one neighbor to another — no “borrowing” necessary.

Neighbor 2 Neighbor might earn you some brownie points in your ‘hood. Whether you want to join the board or just browse the resources available on the website, you’ll be in the know when it comes to collaborating on issues that affect you and Beth next door.

The nonprofit released a 36-page State of Metro Neighborhoods report in August 2022 after conducting a biennial Census, which included feedback from 70+ neighborhood organizations. Highlights suggest litter and illegal dumping are big problems, many neighborhoods aren’t prepared for disasters like tornadoes or floods, and 75% of respondents identified neighborhood safety as a top issue.

Here’s where you come in.

  • Utilize this directory of neighborhood orgs — like crime watch programs and neighborhood associations — and make sure your neighborhood has included its most updated information.
  • Review upcoming events. Policy & Zoning 101 is free to attend next month.
  • Request a consultation with Neighbor 2 Neighbor or ask for referrals if your neighborhood association needs help moving forward.
