Rock the Block
Rock the Block is a one day event focusing on cosmetic improvement of a chosen neighborhood. Residents and other volunteers join to rake, mow, edge and clean up the designated blocks. This formula of high impact aesthetic improvements with a fast pace, great music, and home cooked food has become a biannual success in the South Side. You would be hard pressed to find a more upbeat, fulfilling, and savory volunteer opportunity anywhere.
Quality of Life Plan
The Quality of Life Plan is the result of multiple focus groups and surveys that identify common community goals, resources, and opportunities for improvement. This compilation focuses on five adjacent neighborhoods in South Central Elkhart. Periodically, the plan is updated to remain in tune with the changing social, economic, and sometimes topographical landscape in the target area. A review of this plan is highly suggested for anyone living in this community, especially those who wish to implement or assist in the development or improvement of the target area.
