The Springfield-Leggett Road Neighborhood Association is one of several neighborhood organizations whose purpose is to improve communication between city government and residents.

Among the various projects tackled throughout the year, one annual project stands out for the Springfield-Leggett Road Neighborhood Association. The organization recently donated funds to cover the weekly cost of 10 children attending the Boys & Girls Clubs Summer Camp. Earlier this year they also donated a bicycle during the Juneteenth Community Empowerment Festival Bike Rodeo.

These are some of the ways that the Springfield-Leggett Road Neighborhood Association members give back to the community.

Residents work together to solve various concerns that are common to most neighborhoods. The Springfield-Leggett Road Neighborhood Association meets monthly to be informed of and confront issues happening in the community and take an active part in improving the quality of life in the neighborhood. The association would like to invite neighbors in the area to join. The associations meets at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at Braswell Memorial Library at 727 N. Grace Street in Rocky Mount.

The Human Relations Department is an integral part of the formation and activities of the neighborhood associations. The department serves as a means of resource, guidance and information to the city of Rocky Mount and its citizens. If you need additional information, call 252-972-1180.
