Being a Good Neighbor

August 31, 2011

Being a Good Neighbor

Taking the time to establish good terms with your neighbors has numerous benefits. The community will be friendlier, the neighborhood safer, and the area a nicer and more comfortable place to live.

1. Introduce yourself if you’re new in the neighborhood or new residents have just moved in on your block.

2. Control your dog. Keep your dog on a leash if it has a habit of running rampant on your neighbors’ lawns, especially if they have a cat or a dog of their own, and make sure to clean up after it.

3. Practice parking etiquette. Park in front of your home, not theirs. Avoid slamming car doors and over-revving the engine of your car or motorcycle early in the morning or late at night.

4. Alert your neighbor to parties. If you’re planning a party, be sure to give your neighbors plenty of warning, letting them know when it’s going to start and how long you expect it to go on.

5. Keep your yard tidy. Promote a pleasing neighborhood and encourage your neighbors to do the same. Keeping up appearances helps everyone’s property values.
