Akron has not looked at neighborhood boundaries since the early 2000’s. As many of you may agree, neighborhood identities and boundaries are important to us ….in a good way!
Because of the abundance of neighborhood pride in our city, we want to hear from YOU – the residents of the places we call home. That’s right, we are launching a program for neighborhood enthusiasts who are willing to help us identify, name and establish boundaries.
You can get involved in helping us identify your neighborhood by visiting MyAkronNeighborhood.com. Participants are asked to use the sitemap at the top of the site and follow directions. Have your families, friends and neighbors get involved so we can gain a comprehensive look at how Akronites define Akron.
Participants can also leave a Story with your neighborhood name and boundary to support your opinion. You may also create a new neighborhood if you and your neighbors use a name that is not formally known, or used by other residents of our community. Your input is needed by June 30.
Thank you in advance for your help and support of our City of Akron!
DISCLAIMER:This is a fun and engaging community activity. Results have no bearing on anything other than showcasing neighborhood pride.
