Organize Your Block 

Neighbors who know and look out for each other form the backbone of a strong community. An organized block, no matter how formally or informally organized, increases safety, improves aesthetics, attracts new neighbors, and gets things done. Learn how to organize your block at dutchtownstl.org/blocks.

We’ve got resources to help you interact, communicate, and plug in with your neighbors to get organized.

The Dutchtown Community Improvement District and Dutchtown Main Streets are excited to announce the start of a new community-oriented Neighborhood Beautification Service Program in partnership with employer and training vendor Employment Connection. The program, funded by the Dutchtown CID, is designed to keep Dutchtown’s main thoroughfares clean while recirculating taxpayer money back into the community. Services are expected to start in August 2021.
