TNT creates a comprehensive process for involving neighborhood residents, businesses, and organizations in planning for their neighborhoods. It identifies and builds upon community assets, and develops workable plans and priorities for our neighborhoods. The plans direct resources in the most important areas in the most cost-effective ways. This process strengthens the democracy that is critical for a healthy city, improves the quality of life in our city, and builds the capacity for our city to solve problems and create a desirable future.
TNT meetings are subject to change as necessary. For more information, e-mail TNT@SyrGov.net or call (315) 448-8005.

Syracuse’s neighborhoods are the focus of a vibrant and involved citizenry. The City is as strong as the commitment and dedication of its leadership – from the Southside Neighborhood Action Group’s Block Captains to the volunteers who help clean our parks every Earth Day to the teachers who mold our future leaders and the Police and Firefighters who maintain our safety. The diverse associations throughout Syracuse add immeasurably to civic life and are constantly working to make Syracuse a better place to live, work, learn, play and raise a family.
