“The Carlisle West Side Neighbors are a group of residents who are spreading the gospel about our great neighborhood and looking to improve it along the way. We started our group in the Spring of 2011 and have been connecting residents who share a love of our North West Corner of Carlisle. We make our presence known at the public meetings related to [various] projects to ensure the voices from our neighborhood are heard.”
Mission: Carlisle’s West Side Neighborhood is a vibrant, diverse community anchored by many supportive community organizations and churches. We respect the ideas and opinions of all residents and encourage feedback on ways to strengthen our community through improved safety, security and personal neighborhood connections. Our goal is to look for opportunities to enhance public spaces in our neighborhood through personal and organizational partnerships, address areas of concern by working with local law enforcement, and providing a voice for our residents as the landscape of the West Side changes through the Carlisle Urban Redevelopment Plan.
Sustainability Mission: Carlisle West Side Neighbors promotes sustainability values by refusing to see dead ends in underutilized spaces. In its revitalization projects, it takes advantage of the inherent capital offered by parks and other often abandoned spaces in order to transform them into community spaces. In doing so, West Side Neighbors brings community members together with a common interest and an avenue for collaboration.
