Neighborhood Planning

Recognizing that each of Keene’s neighborhoods has its own distinctive issues, plans should be developed for each one, beginning with those that are in need of revitalization or redevelopment or that have an existing and active neighborhood association, such as the North Central Neighborhood Group (NOCE) and Southeast Keene Neighborhood Group (SEKNG). Plans should attempt to develop each neighborhood's identity and vision, and should include actions that residents, city leadership and other stakeholders can take collectively or individually to promote cohesiveness and a feeling of investment, or to deal effectively with neighborhood quality-of-life issues. Neighborhood associations should be created and supported as well.
