Cities of Service – Current Neighborhood

Our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative

Congratulations to the Oak Park Neighborhood!

The City of Kettering has selected the Oak Park Neighborhood as the 2017 Cities of Service Neighborhood! In honor of this selection, a block party will be held on Saturday, June 10 in Oak Park from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Enjoy hot dogs and chips for lunch, booths providing information on city services, door prizes, children’s activities including a bouncy house, arts & crafts, games and more! This is a free event in celebration of your neighborhood!

In October, the City will assist neighbors in advertising a neighborhood garage sale. You do the cleaning and we’ll do the advertising!

Need a little help with outdoor yard maintenance? Mark your calendar for a neighborhood cleanup on Make A Difference Day, Saturday, October 28 from 9:00 a.m. – noon. Many volunteers will be on hand to help with yard maintenance and yard debris removal.

Perhaps you don’t need help — would you like to volunteer? Just let us know. We would welcome your assistance in this effort!
