One of the nicest things about having all the different neighborhoods in the City of St. Louis is that it gives us a framework around which to build community. We can work on our own neighborhood projects or we can partner with other neighborhoods on larger efforts. Most city neighborhoods have long established and very powerful community organizations.
Through these groups we have a way to meet our neighbors and address local or city-wide concerns. The organizations help build the foundation for our long range community efforts.
Across the oceans, in the Australian state of Victoria, there is a major effort underway to strengthen the region's cities through planned community building activities. Through this gateway you can get lots of interesting ideas for projects and activities from our neighbors on the other side of the world.
