About Us

The Town & Gown Coalition was revived in November 2006, after an open forum was held. During that forum, about 150 Belvedere neighborhood residents voiced many concerns related to off-campus party activity. The Coalition works collaboratively with the Belvedere community to address concerns from all facets of the community.

Concerns included:

  • Excessive noise/Disturbing the peace
  • Destruction of property
  • Extensive parking problems/Cars blocking the street
  • Trash all over yards and in the street
  • Public urination and general disrespect
  • Binge drinking
  • The overall impact on the quality of life and property values

The purpose and intent of the Town & Gown Coalition will help the community:

  • Clearly identify salient issues from a variety of perspectives
  • Learn relevant information/data pertaining to and affecting neighborhood concerns
  • Identify and implement potential solutions and initiatives
  • Identify and overcome potential obstacles
  • Locate valuable resources in the community/state

The Coalition meets four times per academic year.
