Neighborhood Organizations: Getting Started

A neighborhood organization is any group that is:

  • Bringing people together,
  • Defined by a geographic boundary, and
  • Concerned with issues that affect the neighborhood/area.

These organizations work to bring residents together to increase the livability of Bowling Green’s neighborhoods. Neighborhood organizations can help citizens have their voices heard in the public policy debates that take place in the community. They often are formed by citizens acting on their own but sometimes at the suggestion of city government. Many cities view neighborhood organizations as a means of solving problems at the grassroots level, providing a vital link to City Hall, and providing an environment for the development of future civic leaders.
