Ways to connect with folks in your neighborhood

Everett's a great place to be and there are many ways to get connected with your neighborhood! Many neighborhoods have Facebook pages, communicate on and have websites. Contact your neighborhood chairperson to find out how you can get connected!

Walk the dog, stop and chat, admire neighbors' gardens and landscapes, invite neighbors to a potluck, put on a chalk art contest for kids on your block, create a tool bank to share tools among neighbors, invite people to swap recipes or plants. Find common ground, start a conversation, get curious about who your neighbors are and learn about their interests.

  • Creates a positive working relationship between the City and its neighborhood residents
  • Facilitates communication between neighborhoods regarding common concerns
