Creating Connected Communities
The City of Kamloops believes in the value and importance of knowing your neighbours. Knowing your neighbours is a great way to provide an extra level of security to your community, and studies have shown that social connection improves physical health and psychological well-being.
Easy ways to meet your neighbours:
The Neighbourhood Matching Fund (NMF) was created to provide matching dollars for neighbourhood improvements, celebrations, and projects developed and implemented by Neighbourhood Associations and community members.
Central to the NMF is the community match which requires awardees to match their award with contributions from the community like donated materials, professional services, and/or cash.
If you have an idea, the City of Kamloops will match the contributions up to $500.
Some of the awesome things that neighbourhoods have done:
- community BBQ celebrations
- movie nights in the park
- Halloween Block Parties
- winter carnivals
