The Green Impact Zone encompasses five neighborhoods – Ivanhoe, Blue Hills, Manheim, Troostwood and Town Fork Creek. We work closely with the neighborhood organizations in each of these communities. These neighborhood organizations are one of the great strengths of the Green Impact Zone, and by improving their capacity to bring about positive change we can help make all of our neighborhoods stronger.

Each neighborhood has received capacity building funds. The neighborhood leaders have worked together to determine how to divide the funds amongst the neighborhoods. Now it’s time for each neighborhood to come up with a plan for how they would use the money.  It has been interesting to hear of all of the different ideas – from funding activities that bring people together to improving communications and more.

What would you do? If you were given seed money to build your neighborhood’s capacity and develop sustainable initiatives, what kinds of projects would you recommend?
