We all want to feel like we’re part of something bigger than ourselves, to have a place we call home that connects us to the community and the people around us. That’s the goal of the City’s new Neighborhood Resource Program, centered on creating neighborhood groups that bring neighbors together to create a sense of belonging to each other, the neighborhood and the community of Englewood.
The mission of the neighborhood resources program is to build strong and inclusive neighborhoods throughout the City of Englewood. Individuals will be empowered to build relationships, identify issues within their community, access resources, and improve the quality of life for all citizens in Englewood.
The goal is to create a sense of belonging for residents through grass roots effort. All residents should feel connected to each other, to their neighborhood, to local government and to Englewood.
The plan is still developing and we need your help! Specifically, we need volunteers to serve as neighborhood group leaders, ambassadors and organizational partners that will help identify and establish neighborhoods and neighborhood groups where they don’t already exist. If you are interested please fill out the form below and Madeline, the Neighborhood Resources Coordinator, will reach out to you.

Draw Your Neighborhood
Englewood is unique in that it was almost entirely developed before the era of homeowner’s associations (HOAs) which often identify distinct, connected neighborhoods. There are few official neighborhoods that the City of Englewood recognizes. Please click the graphic below to ‘draw your neighborhood’ so we can start to identify neighborhoods in Englewood.
