The Alliance is dedicated to
creating safe, attractive, and resilient neighborhoods. The Alliance is a grass roots community resource that focuses on strengthening neighborhoods through connecting, communicating, coordinating, collaborating and celebrating. To that end, the individuals living in a neighborhood determine the boundaries of that neighborhood, even if these boundaries are not consistent with official land use or planning documents.
Our Goal is to
stimulate caring, sharing, communicating and the functioning of our neighborhoods.
[ Alliance Projects
] nurture and promote neighborhood safety, education, gardens, food storage, self-reliant economies, green living, and facilities of beauty.
The new Silver City Active Neighborhoods program kicks off September 1, 2014. Talk with your neighbors about how you might create a project and, when it's complete, receive recognition, and a little money to help defray costs. Neighbors (you decide the boundaries) must create an organization by registering with the Neighborhood Alliance and designing your own mission statement. Take a look at the registration form, the project application, and the evaluation form for how your neighborhood can become an award winning Silver City Active Neighborhood!
