The Power of Community

A Simple Definition of community may be a group of people who live in the same area, such as a neighborhood. But for most of us, a community is much more than just living in the same area. We want to feel good about our neighborhood and trust our neighbors.

In a neighborhood we may not always have the same opinions, but we generally have common interests and values. How do we want to be treated by our neighbors? How well do we want to know them and appreciate their values and interests? Now is the time to put forth the extra effort to build community in our neighborhood.

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."
William James

Although the request to pay for this study was voted down at the 2016 Annual Homeowner’s meeting, they are still trying to fund it. You need to know about this effort.
