Good Neighbor Initiative

Land Use & Public Space

The Good Neighbor Initiative aims to foster communication and cooperation between construction or development projects and the surrounding community. By proactively engaging in dialogue and setting expectations, the community and developers can work to ensure that construction or demolition projects are efficient and minimize disruption to the everyday life of nearby residents. 

Concerned community members are invited to use the template letter as it applies to the construction site they are concerned about. The letter is a guide – feel free to modify it in order to make this template work for a particular situation and present it to the site manager.

The program will continue to evolve as new situations arise. We look forward to continuing to work towards open and transparent dialogue and towards avoiding conflict for all who live and work in the neighborhood.
