The City of Renton's vision is to create a vibrant place to live, work and play. Renton offers a wide range of neighborhoods from historic homes to well-established areas to brand new developments, all with easy access to shopping, parks and schools. Renton's diverse neighborhoods remain the foundation of our city and we continue to witness positive improvements in many of our unique neighborhoods. The City supports the vitality and positive appearance of neighborhoods through community involvement which is one of the primary reasons Renton residents enjoy such a high quality of life.
The Neighborhood Program is a means for the City to successfully maintain good lines of communication with its citizens. Neighborhood grants allow neighborhoods to apply for matching funds to implement projects that will improve the viability and livability of their neighborhoods. Neighborhood picnics help foster community ties by bringing neighbors together for food, fun and creates an opportunity to discuss neighborhood ideas, issues and concerns.

If you would like to schedule us to come to your
Neighborhood Association Meeting to talk about the New Block Party Grant and

Over the last couple of months we have personally met with
many of the neighborhood associations to learn more about each of their group’s
history, board’s strengths and challenges, current and desired programming,
areas they would like support from the city, and how they view this program
being structured in the future. This has been a valuable experience to
hear your heart and passion for your neighborhood and how we can further engage
and support you in building stronger communities. We’ve learned a lot the last
couple of months and are so appreciative of the time each person spent with me
sharing their Neighborhood story. Read More
