The Great Neighborhoods project engages neighborhoods to focus on the assets that they have and to begin mapping them. Every neighborhood has attributes that make it a Great Neighborhood; things that make it great, unique, and desirable. Every neighborhood also has some challenges. We want to help recognize the good, and help you work with others to make what is good even greater and work to resolve some of the challenges. It’s part of a mutual benefit that goes beyond an individual neighborhood and makes our community even greater. We have recently launched a website dedicated to the Great Neighborhoods project and includes many useful resources including a Resource Guide and a Neighborhood Directory.
Aside from the built environment, communities are made of people. And the strongest communities are the ones in which people are connected and engaged. To connect more with your neighborhood check out our recently launched website dedicated to the Great Neighborhoods project that includes many useful resources including a Resource Guide and a Neighborhood Directory.
Please visit the Great Neighborhoods website at www.greatneighborhoods.info for more information.
Our Neighborhood Directory allows citizens to become more involved in their neighborhood and see why other Rockford citizens love their neighborhoods too. In the directory, you’ll find 54 neighborhoods and neighborhood associations identified and some of their assets as recognized by community members themselves.
Assets that have already been acknowledged include schools, shops, museums, gardens, parks, beautiful homes, and the friendliness and involvement of neighbors.
Please view the Neighborhood Directory located on the Great Neighborhoods website at https://www.greatneighborhoods.info/neighborhood-directory/ to learn more about the neighborhoods in the area.
