Sioux City's Network Neighborhood gives citizens to chance to meet their neighbors, city officials, police, and fire. Discussing issues affecting the neighborhood and working together to build a safer and stronger community.

Information from the "The Sioux City Neighborhood Network" handout.

What is the Neighborhood Network?
The Neighborhood Network is a coalition made up of many Sioux City neighborhood groups.

Our Mission Statement
The Sioux City Neighborhood Network is an organized group of concerned citizens working together to resolve issues affection our neighborhoods and to support changes that will create a positive impact within our community.

While each neighborhood has different problems, residents of all neighborhoods want the city's decision-making process to be responsive to their needs. The Neighborhood Network helps residents become better informed and provide a link between Sioux City's neighborhoods and City Hall.

What can The Neighborhood Network Do?
Citizens meet regularly in their respective neighborhoods to develop solutions to local problems and put them into action. They form a protective networked of concern throughout the city.

Neighborhood groups are the "eyes and ears" of the city. They have insight and common sense needed to deal with local and citywide issues.

Become a champion within your community.

The last time we checked, two heads were better than one. Twenty-five heads can be awesome! Eight organized groups will be a powerful force for Sioux City.

Neighborhood Network Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6:00PM, Police/Fire Dept. 601 Douglas Street. If you are interested in attending a meeting or getting involved, please contact Neighborhood Network President, Rick Arnold at (712) 251-8877 for more information.
