In June, the Delaware Neighborhood Association was recognized by the City of Springfield as a registered neighborhood association.
This designation means that a neighborhood association has provided the City with proof that the organization is active; and, that it has made efforts to involve residents and property owners from throughout the neighborhood in activities. Registered neighborhoods receive the following from the City’s Planning & Neighborhoods Office:
- Mailing labels with a master copy of all local addresses (and property owners addresses) that fall within the boundaries of the neighborhood.
- Service request data: a report is issued monthly and contains all citizens’ code complaints targeting areas within the neighborhood boundaries.
- Area zoning notices. Registered neighborhoods are notified of any zoning requests and updates within the area. This information is provided by the Development Review Office of the City’s Planning Department.
- Neighborhood programs information: notices of neighborhood programs that the City or participating organizations offer.
Neighborhoods Office staff can provide residents with many resources to make neighborhood associations successful. Please feel free to contact Senior Planner Alana Owen with any questions at 417-864-183
