What is the Neighborhood Program?
The Neighborhood Program is an initiative developed to build bonds and foster communication between City Hall and Appleton neighborhoods. The goal of the program is to strengthen Appleton's neighborhoods.
How does it work?
The Neighborhood Program asks residents of Appleton to register their neighborhoods with the City.
How do I register my neighborhood?
First, meet with your neighbors to define your neighborhood boundaries, create a neighborhood name and identify a primary and secondary contact person. Next, submit a neighborhood registration
form to the Community and Economic Development Department. There is no cost to register your neighborhood.
How do I define my neighborhood boundaries?
There are no restrictions to defining your neighborhood other than a proposed neighborhood boundary cannot overlap with existing registered neighborhoods.
| ||What are the benefits of registering my neighborhood? |
First and foremost, residents in registered neighborhoods become empowered to strengthen and advocate for positive change in their neighborhoods. In addition, here is a list of other benefits of registering your neighborhood:
