How can I let others know about a neighborhood-based group?

A neighborhood-based group may request that the City list the group on the City website.  This allows City staff to maintain a list of area representatives in order to share information.

It will also allow community members to find a contact person for their area if one exists.

Steps to having a group recognized on the City's website:

 - (OPTIONAL) Consult with the Community Development Director on target boundaries.  The City suggests a target size of around 100 households, though this is flexible.

 - Visit with your neighbors with the goal of having at least 30% of those households included in the initial application to list the group.  You will likely want to gather contact information such as phone numbers and emails; please do not turn that personal information into the City.

 - Submit your completed forms to the Community Development Department.

Sample forms are available here:
