Build a stronger sense of community and quality of life in your neighborhood by joining or organizing a community group. Residents of organized communities are safer, happier, physically and mentally healthier, more resilient, sustainable and stable, and have higher property values!
NGLA is a partnership between the city and a network of over 50 registered community groups to increase capacity, relationships, and communication between neighborhoods and the city. It is a forum for community leaders to collectively identify concerns, discuss issues, resolve conflicts, and implement solutions to create healthy neighborhoods with a strong sense of community. The network provides the knowledge and resources for engaged local residents to build upon their neighborhoods community capital (existing assets) to enhance their quality of life.
Is your neighborhood interested in joining NGLA or are you interested in forming a community group in your neighborhood? Contact Wayne today at 303-651-8637 or email.

How do I join NGLA?
There is a specific process to join NGLA and formalize a community group. Please contact us if you are interested before proceeding.
Registered community groups must be open to all residents or property owners within the neighborhood’s defined boundaries. Homeowners Associations (HOAs) are encouraged to join NGLA as a volunteer community group that includes all residents of the community regardless of ownership status. This does not affect the HOA’s normal functions or bylaws.
For more information, to start a community group, or to register your existing group (or HOA) with NGLA please contact Wayne Tomac, Neighborhood Resource Specialist.
Consider attending a community leader skills development session or HOA training.
