Neighborhood Support

Strong neighborhoods are the building blocks of a vital community.  Harrison Township residents are encouraged to get involved in matters related to their neighborhoods.  Support for their efforts is provided through the Development Department. The department's Director is responsible for working with our neighborhoods and neighborhood associations in a positive and proactive manner.

Currently the residents of over 15 neighborhoods have come together as associations to deal with quality of life issues which affect their immediate area.  In some cases, they've banded together strictly for crime watch.  In others, they also work to promote neighborhood improvement and pride.  In addition to the individual Neighborhood Associations, Harrison Township has the President's Council, which is an independent organization whose members are the Presidents of the recognized Neighborhood Associations in Harrison Township.  For additional information on the President's Council, please click here.

If you are interested in finding out more information about the township's neighborhood association requirements and reviewing the registration documents for starting a new neighborhood association, please click on the below link.  Please contact our offices at 890-5611, if you have any questions regarding the registration form or about additional neighborhood services.   Registration documents may be turned into the Development Office, 5945 N. Dixie Drive, Dayton, Ohio 45414.
