National Night Out is August 6
All across Everett, neighbors will be joining neighbors in the evening of Tuesday, August 6 to enjoy refreshments and to get to know one another as part of National Night Out Against Crime (NNO). Crime doesn't thrive where neighbors know each other and look out for each other. And neighbors who are connected feel safer and enjoy their community more. NNO celebrations often include games or music, good food and camaraderie. All are welcome!
At NNO, you can talk with City officials, police officers, fire fighters and other city staff who will be dropping by the events to greet community members. See everettwa.gov/NNO for more details on NNO events near you.
Learn new skills to stay connected!
The Everett Office of Neighborhoods offers training to help neighborhoods, community members and interest-based groups build capacity, learn new skills and help one another succeed in engaging community members.
Our next training will be in late May. Please check here for updates.

Ways to connect with folks in your neighborhood
Everett's a great place to be and there are many ways to get connected with your neighborhood! Many neighborhoods have Facebook pages, communicate on NextDoor.com and have websites. Contact your neighborhood chairperson to find out how you can get connected! Not sure which neighborhood you live in? Check our neighborhoods map (PDF). View the city map gallery for more maps.
Walk the dog, stop and chat, admire neighbors' gardens and landscapes, invite neighbors to a potluck, put on a chalk art contest for kids on your block, create a tool bank to share tools among neighbors, invite people to swap recipes or plants. Find common ground, start a conversation, get curious about who your neighbors are and learn about their interests.
