How can I get involved in Joaquin Neighborhood?

If you really want to get involved in the neighborhood, you should start by joining the Joaquin Neighborhood Facebook group. You can see what residents are talking about and find out about meetings and plans that affect our neighborhood. Under "About" there's also some useful information about who to contact about various problems. (Zoning issues, junky neighbors, graffiti, etc.)
Then you should come to neighborhood meetings.  
The neighborhood has a citizens group, the Joaquin Improvement Association, that has meetings every so often to discuss issues affecting our neighborhood. It's a great way to meet neighbors, let your voice be heard, and find out how you can get involved. The meeting times are listed on Facebook or you can sign up for the email list:

  •  "For many years residents of the neighborhood have been using a Yahoo Group as an email list. You can subscribe and unsubscribe to this group at any time. You must send an email (a blank email is fine) to: Then you should receive a confirmation email and just follow the instructions. That's it! There hasn't been much action on the email list lately, so don't worry if you don't see a lot of emails from it."  
To get involved in the city at large, follow this link to a page on the mayor's blog with some great suggestions. Also, if you live near a school consider going in and seeing where they could use some help!
