The most important and effective partner the Community Services Department has is a concerned and informed citizen. The “Neighborhood Exchange” is being offered to you as an effort to provide the information needed to address concerns in your neighborhood.

The City of Raleigh’s Community Services Department is constantly searching for ways to help residents identify physical and human resources to help them build stronger neighborhoods and improve their quality of life.

In 2004 visionary leaders, supportive sponsors, and participating citizens witnessed the birth of a new movement in Raleigh. We call this movement the Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange. The title has proven appropriate because, looking back on the neighborhood and citizen development workshops and speakers, participants felt that a genuine exchange stimulating of ideas and information had indeed taken place.

September has been designated as Neighborhoods Month by the Raleigh City Council. In conjunction with this event, the Neighborhood Exchange Citizens Committee in partnership with the City of Raleigh’s Community Services Department will host the Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange. This event will be held on Friday and Saturday, September 14-15, 2007, at the McKimmon Center, N. C. State University.
