The Many Values of Neighborhood Associations
The town of Irondequoit recently completed an initiative to create or revive neighborhood associations. Some of the associations have been around for generations, but most of them are newly created. The town has encouraged residents to step forward and get their neighborhood group up and running; 11 new groups were formed over the summer.
The Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) aims to beautify neighborhoods and create a greater sense of community. The NEP is funded through the proceeds of a fine levied on the former owner of Medley Center.
Neighborhood Associations are a great way to build up a community. For prospective new residents they can be a great asset and provide the feeling of community that many people desire. Neighbors working together to beautify their community and creating helpful programs such as Neighborhood Watch, garage sales and charity work for local causes enhances the value of that neighborhood in many different ways.
