The Key to a Great Neighborhood

by Rob Zwemmer

The Key to a Great Neighborhood

Having a good neighbor begins with being a good neighbor yourself. With our busy schedules, and with social time being spent more and more on the Internet, we sometimes forget about interacting with the people that live around us; the people that comprise and share our community. You may know their names, their children’s names and where they work; you may know them just by a quick nod or wave each day; or maybe they are just strangers that never make eye contact. The people that form our neighborhoods have the potential to become one of the most important social networks we have. Consider investing the time to get to know the folks next door and across the street and develop a rapport of friendship and a reliable support system. We have all heard the horror stories about people feuding with their neighbors because music was too loud or an overgrown tree was encroaching on their property. It’s important to keep a friendly demeanor when addressing your neighbors, even if it’s 1 a.m. and they are keeping you up with an all-night party. By establishing a neighborly rapport it’s easier to resolve differences when they arise.  Communicating with those around us enhances our lifestyles and builds a culture of mutual respect and promotes “watching out for one another”. One of the best forms of maintaining a safe neighborhood is a group of close-knit neighbors. Offer to pick-up the mail and newspapers when someone’s on vacation, omitting any potential for burglary or malicious mischief. Networking with your neighbors can be invaluable. You may need recommendations and references for reliable services, and they might just happen to have the best pool technician or housekeeper in town. For families with kids, it is particularly important; knowing the other parents in the community helps you to better train your children in understanding “stranger danger” and who they can trust if help is ever needed. Block parties are also a great way to get acquainted and build relationships that lead to a harmonious coexistence. Have good neighbors by being a good neighbor.
