Transforming our Tree Streets

Healthy Neighborhood • Healthy Housing • Healthy People


Healthy Neighborhoods releases philosophy on property taxes for new development.

Healthy Neighborhoods recognizes the importance of public and private investments for transformed tree streets. To reach the vision of the Tree Streets articulated in the Growing our Tree Streets Transformation Plan, private investment will need to be matched by public investments funded through tax payer dollars. It’s important every development of lots in the tree streets grow our tax base and contribute to this future.

What is a “healthy neighborhood?”

The definition of what a successful neighborhood looks like will be informed by neighbors, and expected to emerge and evolve over time. The components of a healthy neighborhood will be defined by the priorities of issues impacting health, and will be culturally sensitive and linguistically accessible to those in the neighborhood.

Key components of a healthy neighborhood:

  • Affordable, safe and lead-free housing

  • Access to medical care, healthy food and nutrition education, and safe places to exercise and play

  • Available employment and training

  • Places and ways to nurture social connections and access social supports

Join us, and let’s build the future of our Tree Streets Neighborhood together.

If you are ready to work along side your neighbors for the good of our neighborhood, then we need you!
