14th Annual Davis Neighbors’ Night Out - Sunday October 13
The City of Davis, UC Davis, and Associated Students of UC Davis (ASUCD), are planning the 14th Annual Davis Neighbors’ Night Out on Sunday, October 13, 2019.
Davis Neighbors’ Night Out is a celebration of our community, initiated to encourage neighbors to get to know one another. Connected neighborhoods often make safer neighborhoods with residents looking out for one another.
Many participants have stated they have lived in a neighborhood for years and continue to meet new people at each Neighbors Night Out event. Mayor Brett Lee is looking forward to the event, stating, “The annual tradition of Neighbors Night Out provides an occasion for neighbors to visit with each other in a relaxed and low key setting. We encourage all neighborhoods to host an event where people can get to know one another and foster existing relationships.”
The event is scheduled in October to include new or returning UC Davis students in their neighborhood festivities. Starting the academic year on a positive note can reduce the potential for misunderstandings or conflicts by opening lines of communication among all residents.
Neighbors, neighborhood associations, Neighborhood Watch Liaisons, apartment complexes, and/or homeowner associations are encouraged to be a “Party Sponsor”. The Party Sponsor will take the lead in setting up an activity such as a potluck dinner, BBQ, dessert party or ice cream social to give neighbors an opportunity to introduce themselves and exchange phone numbers for neighborhood watch lists or future neighborhood events. Last year 109 parties were held throughout Davis with 6600 invitations sent and an estimated 20,000 people invited to join a party. Make sure to be a part of the fun!
