Have you been looking for a way to get in contact with other neighborhoods in Arlington? Are you interested in starting a neighborhood group in your neighborhood? Have you wondered how your neighborhood can be more involved in the City of Arlington? The Neighborhood Leadership Network (NLN) is a working group for neighborhood leaders across the City of Arlington to build relationships with other neighborhood leaders, learn best practices for a variety of neighborhood issues and develop a partnership with the City. The NLN is a resource for strengthening neighborhood leaders and providing resources that will empower Arlington neighborhoods to achieve neighborhood and community goals.
The Neighborhood Leadership Network meets quarterly to discuss pertinent neighborhood issues, and to learn about City initiatives affecting neighborhoods throughout Arlington. The members of the Neighborhood Leadership Network will also be included in an email listserv for neighborhood-related discussions throughout the year.
Neighborhood Leaders must be able to demonstrate an existing leadership role within their neighborhood organization by meeting 4 of the 8 criteria available on the Neighborhood Leadership Network website.
Don’t meet the criteria? Don’t worry!
All NLN meetings are open to any Arlington neighbors who are interested in becoming more involved with their neighborhood. If you’re not sure where to start, City of Arlington Neighborhood Engagement Program staff will work with you and provide tools and resources to bring your neighborhood together!
The next Virtual Neighborhood Leadership Network Meeting is Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. The primary topic will be about how neighbors can be more involved in the zoning and development process within the City.
