Neighbors helping neighbors is just one of ideas behind the Neighborhood Network in Worthington. The more people know each other, the more they can look out for each other and build relationships that can benefit an entire community. The Neighborhood Network community building and information sharing program, initiated by the City of Worthington, is expanding to develop more 2-way communication between the City and Worthington residents and promote strong neighborhoods within Worthington.
The City is asking residents to join the Neighborhood Network to help the flow of information between the City and the neighborhoods. Network volunteers will receive information from the City through e-mail or regular mail and pass it along to their neighbors through e-mail, a neighborhood newsletter, flyers or word of mouth. They will also be a contact for their neighbors to get information to the City about happenings in their neighborhood. Personal connections make strong neighborhoods, whether it’s through an organized civic association or more casual neighborhood networking. The City of Worthington and its partners believe that making connections with people in your neighborhood can build strong and safe neighborhoods and promote a vibrant community.
