Neighborhood Partnership Initiative
The previous Neighborhoods in Action Program is now known as the Neighborhood Partnership Initiative! Here are some of the changes that have been made to the program:
- The previous 22 neighborhoods have been combined into nine. These neighborhoods are based on the Development Services neighborhood planning groups and will be used for planning and communication purposes only.
- There are no more leadership positions. Previous chairs have been invited to participate in neighborhood plans, trainings, etc.
- Communication to neighborhood residents will be done through targeted emails, mailings, social media, utility bills, newsletters, schools, and the utilization of a network of community leaders that are connected with the people of a given neighborhood or area.
One of the new focuses of the Neighborhood Partnership Initiative is to work more effectively with schools in the community. As part of this focus, the City of Orem recently worked with the principals at the Suncrest and Sharon Elementary Schools to build a 9-Square game cube at each of these Title One Schools. The students (and teachers) are excited to play the popular game. We appreciate Jared Tanner from DCD Plumbing for donating the needed materials and to our hardworking Neighborhood Preservation Officers for putting the games together.
