 "IMPROVING NEIGHBORHOODS THROUGH THE EMPOWERMENT OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS"

 

Neighborhood revitalization is about building capacity and empowering community members. Our division aims to preserve and enhance neighborhoods within the city of Medford. We believe that empowerment can be obtained through providing the necessary education and resources that would allow citizens to become involved and improve conditions in their neighborhoods. We also wish to promote civic pride and responsibility in and among neighbors and neighborhoods. Ultimately it is our desire to enhance the sense of community throughout the City of Medford.
