VIP neighborhood coalitions work to improve the safety of residents in four neighborhoods by organizing and forming active partnerships between city departments and community residents. VIP neighborhood coalitions are a forum where residents can join with local businesses, organizations, community leaders, and city staff to identify and address safety concerns and promote peace in their community. Each coalition will develop a violence prevention plan that describes the nature and extent of violence in the community; strengths and challenges of their community; and identifies goals and activities that are aimed at promoting peace and reducing violence in the neighborhood.
