What is a Neighborhood Plan?
A Neighborhood Plan is a way of organizing local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. It normally includes a vision, a list of goals, and implementation strategy that define and shape the unique character of the neighborhood. The neighborhood planning process engages the entire community to develop a plan for the desired future.
