Resilient Neighborhoods

Each year, we invite Arvada residents to take a survey regarding how connected you feel to your neighbors. Beginning Sept. 18 through Oct. 2, visit Speak Up Arvada to fill out our short survey. You do not have to be a registered user of Speak Up Arvada to participate in the survey. The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. We appreciate your feedback! Please contact us at if you have any questions.

What is a Resilient Neighborhood?

A resilient neighborhood is one that can survive, adapt, and thrive in the face of change. In the event of a disaster it is very likely that your first responders will be your neighbors and other community members who are prepared to act.

Building resilient neighborhoods is an important part of the Neighbors Connected program and the City is here to partner with your neighborhood to help you get started. By participating in Neighbors Connected, you and your neighbors are taking a critical step towards being prepared and being resilient -- getting to know each other and building trust!

Get Involved

A resilient neighborhood begins with you. The City of Arvada offers a number of resilience-building programs and resources to help you and your neighbors get started. Below is a list of potential activities.  **Please note: Some of these activities will need to be adjusted to be done virtually during the Stay-at-Home order.
