Neighborhood Block Parties

One of the most effective ways to build community spirit and promote safety is to know your neighbors. SUNA encourages annual Neighborhood Block Party Nights on the Sundays in September.

Guidelines for  Hosting Block Parties:

  • Enlist the help of a couple of neighbors to serve as host households.

  • Suggested time is 4 to 7 pm.

  • Identify the households/streets you want to include.

  • Distribute an invitation door-to-door or in email.

  • Ask neighbors to bring a dish to share and lawn chairs.

  • Host households can provide grills for cooking and serving tables.

  • Set up in your front or back yard or driveway. DO NOT BLOCK THE STREETS!

  • If the party will be held on a cul-de-sac or street with only one entrance/exit, the city of Urbana can provide barricades to block off the street. To do so, apply for a block party permit at  http://urbanaillinois.us/residents/residential-block-party-permits. The phone number for Urbana Public Works is 384-2342.

  • Invite members of the Urbana Police department to attend your party. They welcome the opportunity to meet neighbors!  Phone (217) 384-2320 or email Lt. Robert Fitzgerald (fitzgerj@urbanaillinois.us).

  • Take photos of your party!  Email them to SUNA, and we will post some on the SUNA website.

Consider hosting a Neighborhood Block Party. Contact a SUNA coordinator.
