Wilson Neighborhood Associations

Neighborhood Associations bring the community together in order to improve the viability and livability of the City of Wilson's  neighborhoods.

What is a Neighborhood Association?
It is a group of residents and business representatives who devote their time and energy to improving and enhancing a well-defined geographic area. The group holds meetings, sponsors events and plans activities that provide an avenue for exchange of ideas, prioritizing projects, providing solutions and implementing plans to improve a neighborhood.

Why start or belong to a Neighborhood Assocation?

  • build a sense of community
  • address concerns or issues of need
  • form a collective, united voice
  • provide citizens with an effective link to community and governmental groups
  • empower community members to work together to improve the quality of life
