For Non-HOA neighborhoods, the City recognizes there is no formal structure or funding mechanism to maintain shared spaces. Through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, City Council has approved funding for the repair or replacement of screening walls and entry features. For 2023, we have initiated this program for Greengate neighborhood focusing on screening wall and entryway enhancements.

Throughout this process, residents will have several ways to participate in the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. We want this project to be the best it can be! So as we begin, we need your (1) input regarding project enhancement options and (2) involvement on key days and events. Please consider: 

  1. Attending the neighborhood public meeting
    Update: Thank you to the 35+ residents who attended the neighborhood meeting on April 27. If you signed up to be on committee, then City Staff will be in touch in the coming weeks to kick that process off! If you were unable to attend the meeting, then please review the PowerPoint presentation and meeting summary to see an overview of what was discussed.

  2. Volunteering to help organize your neighborhood workday
    Update: Thank you to all who served on the workday steering committee and/or helped with the workday. Over a dozen volunteers of all ages showed up on July 8 from 7:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. to trim back overgrown foliage at the corner of Alder and Main Streets to increase visibility at the intersection. View pictures here.

  3. Serving on the Enhancement Project Steering Committee
    Update: The Project Steering Committee held their first meeting on Aug. 2 from 6-7 p.m. via Zoom and provided input on fencing, signage, and brick repair at the entrance of Edelweiss and Allen Heights Drives. A summary of the discussion can be seen here.
