Neighborhood Enhancement

Working to improve the ‘hood’ for me and you.

The Neighborhood Enhancement committee works to strengthen the neighborhood core values: education, safety, diversity, vitality of the Wil-Mar neighborhood center, and sustainability. The committee meets as needed.

What We Do

  • Organize the annual Chili Dinner to raise money for the Marquette Neighborhood Scholarship
  • Review applications and administer the Marquette Neighborhood Scholarship
  • Administer Good Neighbor Award given every October to people who have made a unique and important contribution to the Marquette Neighborhood.
  • Oversee Neighborhood Enhancement Grants to assist at-risk Marquette families and individuals by providing support to neighborhood projects and non-profit organizations.
  • Arrange the annual neighborhood Garage Sale
  • Work on membership and communications.   Coordinate information sharing within the neighborhood including our List Serve and webpage.
  • Coordinate the annual general membership meeting where members vote to approve the annual budget and elect board members for the next fiscal year.
