A neighborhood association is typically a volunteer group of residents, business representatives and other stakeholders working to improve the defined geographic area in which the residents live. Neighborhood association meetings are a place to exchange ideas, decide on projects and priorities, propose solutions and make other plans affecting the neighborhood.
Most associations meet monthly to discuss holding fundraising events, publishing neighborhood directories and newsletters, and implementing projects to build neighborhood pride. Most neighborhood associations have an elected board of directors and bylaws.
You can create a mailing list of neighborhood groups and their leaders. You also may call the Neighborhood Services Division at 816-513-3200 or send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with customized lists.
