As one town, Irondequoit shares many assets such as a gleaming library, a beautiful waterfront and a wide selection of community festivals and parades. However, we are also a community made up of many smaller neighborhoods, each with their own unique characteristics, assets and celebrations. It is important that our efforts are carefully balanced between uniting our community as a whole while also working to highlight, support and enhance the specific attributes of each neighborhood.In this manner we can develop one strong and vibrant town.
To this end, the Town of Irondequoit launched an initiative focused on encouraging the development and fostering the growth of formalized neighborhood associations. These associations subsequently came together to form the Irondequoit Neighborhood Roundtable in order to share best practices, collaborate on common goals and synergize town wide. Through the efforts of the collaboration of both groups, residents can find many supports, access resources and connect with coaches which are standing by to guide you with your efforts to create stronger, safer and more vibrant communities.
It is our hope that voluntary, democratic, resident led neighborhood associations will allow existing residents and community stakeholders a mechanism which can be used to bridge gaps and achieve common goals as well as help residents feel a sense of ownership and empowerment to advocate for their community. We also anticipate promotion and advocacy surrounding unique atmospheres throughout Irondequoit will attract new residents to our town and ensure that they are able to find the unique communities, varied housing styles and a diverse array of desirable amenities that are suited for thier lifestyle here in Irondequoit.
Working together with the Town of Irondequoit the Neighborhood Roundtable hopes to leverage the strengths within each of our neighborhoods bringing additional positive attention to the entire Town of Irondequoit and enhancing quality of life for all.
