What is a Neighborhood?
The purpose of this page is to provide neighborhood groups a portal to local resources. This will enable engaged citizens to find out how and where to get information relevant to establish neighborhood identity, organize, and share best practices for community-building.
A neighborhood is spatially defined by the physical geography, and functionally defined by social networks. These come together in relationships among neighbors and sharing of resources.
This page was created to assist Oshkosh neighborhood groups. For neighborhoods that are interested in forming an association, this page provides guidance and structure. By establishing an association, neighborhood residents enjoy a common voice on issues that impact them and an increased sense of connectivity with both their neighbors and the City.
It is important to remember that neighborhood associations are not the same as homeowner associations - they are more loosely formed and do not have covenants, conditions, and restrictions.
The City of Oshkosh recognizes neighborhood associations and works collaboratively with them on issues of mutual concern. For established neighborhood groups, this page provides information on a wide variety of available services, programs, and resources.
Regardless of which neighborhood group you belong to, we are confident that this page will be a valuable means of enhancing your neighborhood and encouraging a sense of community.
