When Theresa decided she wanted to have safe sidewalks on her street so her children could walk to her neighbor’s house, she began talking to her neighbors. Not everyone can serve on their local planning boards or city councils. But you can take the initiative to talk to your neighbors — and get them talking to more people.

Talk to your neighbors.

Take the initiative to talk to your neighbors — and get them talking to more people. Ask them what they want to see improved in their community. Make a list and then set up a time for everyone to get together at a local meeting spot to discuss and decide on priorities for improving your community's built environment.
