Neighborhood Associations and Other Resources

Syracuse is home to many neighborhood and community-based organizations. These groups are created by concerned residents, business owners, and service providers who hope to improve our quality of life.

Neighborhood associations offer a great opportunity to meet folks in your community, get engaged in our City, work on challenges, and plan events. These are independent groups — they’re not sponsored by the city. You can find your local neighborhood associations below.
