Many meet with one goal: To improve Flint’s neighborhoods

Many meet with one goal: To improve Flint’s neighborhoods

A vigilant community is a more vibrant one. Neighborhoods with watchful, active residents who look out for one another have been shown not only to be less impacted by crime, but to make themselves more attractive for investment and development. 

Flint’s dedicated community and residential associations help keep the city-at-large more enjoyable to its citizens, while increasing its appeal to visitors.

In partnership with Flint Neighborhoods United we’ve assembled a list of some of the more active neighborhood groups and details about when they share and discuss matters of common interest. Most meet monthly.

Editor’s Note: If you want to get your group on our list or have news and information to share, contact us at thehubflint@gmail.com
