What is your association doing for NNO?

I had to look it up. Doing nothing.

Barbecue buffet by the pool with masks and a flyer about the Delta variant offered at entry; a Pfizer vaccine station; and another station to accept donations to the COA reserve fund (currently 40% funded), with posterboards declaring, "Remember Champlain Towers South? It could happen here. Please help."

We aren't doing anything either -sadly, this has become a community where people (the adults antwag) rarely interact with anyone. That said, I like augustin's ideas.

Since NNO is supposed to be about improving police/community relations to enhance crime prevention, this might be a good idea to invite officers from the local office to stop by, partake in a community meal and meet the neighbors in a festive environment.

Or....doing a neighborhood clean up project,especially if graffiti has been a problem. The faster you get rid of The tags, the more you may discourage such behavior.

Have never heard of it. But I really like Sheila's idea. In our urban 'hood (as in many cars the USA) , there's been an increase in gun violence so it'd be great the have our local officer tell us something.

And she's right about graffiti removal. WE do have an agency that's very respsovie about removing it, but for those who don't, community involvement is a wonderful idea.

For us, it is a neighborhood festival. Years past, we have invited real estate agents and other vendors to set up booths advertising services, food trucks, bounce houses and face painters. We also had police and fire fighters attend in years past.

This year we are doing a smaller celebration. No police, fire, bounce houses, or face painters. I plan on setting up a pop up tent with table and chairs and doing a meet and greet with homeowners. I think the meet and greet is particularly valuable since we have moved to an online meeting format.

I am going out on a limb by setting up a comment box for homeowners to offer comments on whatever is on their mind.

I tried once with the National Night out but nothing really happened. Maybe kept our porch lights on. In my area it's more common that the more crime prone areas do stuff. Usually the police will have a party of sorts somewhere in that community.

It may be because our area/city is pretty low crime. We have neighborhood watches in many neighborhoods. I think we have had more police officers arrested. So hanging out with the police isn't something want to do unless calling them for a report of a crime...

Our Association will be holding a National Nite out as it has for many years. Attendance is very high as a local police officer comes and speaks to the group and answers questions. It is a social time as our Association interacts a lot.
