Dear Delaware Neighborhood Association:
The Neighborhoods Office as part of the Planning and Development Department with the City of Springfield, recently reviewed your application for consideration to be a recognized neighborhood organization. We are writing to inform you that your application has been accepted, and your organization will be added to our list of Recognized Neighborhood Organizations.
This designation simply means that you have provided the City with proof that your organization is active; and, that you make efforts to involve residents and property owners from throughout your neighborhood in your activities. As a participant, your organization will receive the following information from the Neighborhoods staff:
Mailing Labels- a master copy of all local addresses (and property owners addresses) that fall within your neighborhood.
Service Request Data- This report is issued monthly and contains all citizens’ code complaints targeting areas within your neighborhood boundaries.
Area Zoning Notices- You will be notified of any zoning requests and updates within your area (provided by the Development Review Office of the Planning Department).
Neighborhood Programs Information- You will receive notices of neighborhood programs that the City or participating organizations offer.
Other than what has been listed, the Neighborhoods staff can provide you with many resources that can help make your neighborhood association successful. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have at 864-1831.
Alana Owen, AICP
Senior Planner, City of Springfield
