Lakewood Linked

When neighbors start talking, good things happen!
Linked LogoOur community becomes stronger when we all work together to meet the needs in our neighborhoods, find solutions to challenges and offer assistance and help. That’s the idea behind Lakewood Linked, Mayor Bob Murphy’s initiative to foster collaboration, communication and cooperation.
 

What can you do?

• Connect with the businesses, churches and schools in and around your neighborhood. They are part of the neighborhood and often are ready and willing to support neighborhood projects.
• Create a neighborhood support network to assist those who need help with tasks such as snow shoveling, leaf raking or yard cleanup.
• Arrange a block party to get to know your neighbors and learn who needs help.
