Neighborhood Survey Project Funded!

Mt Scott Arleta Neighborhood Association got word last week that we received funds for a grant we submitted via SEUL's Neighborhood Small Grants Program

The project is a partnership with ROSE CDC and the Mt Scott Community Center.  In a nutshell, we will be developing a survey and distributing it to MSA neighbors (that's you!). The information generated will allow us to connect neighbors to one another by establishing hobby and interest groups, generate a volunteer list for future neighborhood projects from this survey engaging our neighbors in creating a more livable and sustainable community.  Additionally, we will collect information from the survey regarding local area businesses, schools, and professionals living in the area to create a directory of resources that can be utilized by neighbors.

Our hope is that this will allow us to foster relationships and build community by helping us connect with one other and work together for the betterment of Mt Scott-Arleta.

There will be many opportunities for service related to this project, the first being survey development.  If you are interested in this aspect please contact me at mtscott.arleta.na@gmail.com.

We look forward to working with many new faces this coming year as this project moves forward.  Some other volunteer opportunities will include: stuffing envelopes, (potentially) distributing surveys door to door, compiling and interpreting the data from returned surveys, and help the development of a community resource guide.  Stay tuned!
