The year 2020 will be etched into history as a time where the world rallied together to fight a deadly pandemic, speak out against racial injustice, and ensure the continuity of democracy. This year also marks the start of a new chapter for the residents of East Village in Dallas, Texas with the launch of Neighbors of East Village - Our very own Neighborhood Association!
THE VISION for a new neighborhood association was born in the spring of 2020, during official orders to “Stay Home, Stay Safe”. In this time, we spent more time at home than ever imagined possible and began utilizing our neighborhood assets to recreate outside. Through spending more time near our homes and discussing the impact of pandemic with next door neighbors or new faces on the street, common interests in the community were discovered which served as the catalyst to create an official neighborhood association that would bring those common interests to fruition.
THE PURPOSE of Neighbors is to create meaningful connections with our neighbors, small business owners, and our elected/appointed local officials. As we emerge from the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, these connections will have much more meaning as we work towards building a strong and safe community.
THE IMPACT of our neighborhood association is only as effective as our membership engagement. There is so much promise to what the East Village neighborhood can be within the next 2 to 4 years; however, now is the time to plan for what that future neighborhood will look like. Join as a MEMBER today to help write this new chapter for East Village!
