What if there is no neighborhood group in where I live?

Not all areas of Kansas City, KS have neighborhood groups. Livable Neighborhoods can guide you through the process of starting a neighborhood group in your area and getting registered with our office!

Why Organize?

Before you begin asking your neighbors to organize, first show them some of the reasons and benefits for forming a neighborhood association. Some of the advantages neighborhood associations serve are:

  • Helping residents work together for the preservation and improvement of their neighborhood.
  • Supplying a channel through which neighborhood goals can be met.
  • Unity and communication that allows for a voice and influence into what happens in surrounding areas.
  • Facilitating neighborhood social activities.
  • Providing an effective communication link with the City government and other influential groups.

First Steps:

The first step in starting your neighborhood group is to contact the Livable Neighborhoods and the Community Policing Offices. Each of these organizations can offer support and guidance through the neighborhood organizing process. Both are located at 4953 State Ave. Kansas City, Kansas 66102
