Project Description

The Lincoln Park & Five Points Neighborhood Activation began in Fall 2023 with an interested resident contacting the City for insight into how to build up the association.

This meeting started a longer process where residents and City staff will work together to build a neighborhood board, bylaws, and brand, and the City Liasion will work on building a comprehensive Neighborhood Status Assessment (see below). This is also a part of the Northwest Neighborhood Plan.

Neighborhood Status Assessment (NSA)

Neighborhood Status Assessments (NSA) begin with interested residents contacting the City. A City Liaison is assigned to the neighborhood and provides support, resources, and best practices over the course of 12-18 months.

The ultimate goal of the NSA is to empower residents to independently manage their neighborhood association.

The City Liaison distributes a survey and conducts at least 50 interviews of neighborhood residents. The NSA concludes with a comprehensive written document on neighborhood history, demographics, and data.
