2. Potential Options for Establishing a Neighborhood Organization 
It is a good time to initiate discussion regarding how Pine Grove Mills neighborhoods can organize in a way to keep the Small Area Plan visible, engage the community, and get people involved in effectively implementing the Plan. A general description of how Pine Grove Mills neighborhoods want to be organized could be included in the final Small Area Plan. 

The Borough of State College has several neighborhood associations that are active in municipal issues. These include the Highlands Civic Association, College Heights Association, and Holmes-Foster Neighborhood Association. The Borough has a neighborhood web page at that provides some information on each association you may find informative. 

There are also countless examples of how to organize neighborhood organizations on the internet. Here are links to two handbooks from Lansing, MI and Sioux Falls, SD.
