The Norristown New Horizons Collaborative is the Municipality of Norristown’s new way of doing business. New Horizons is an innovative program aimed to strengthen the relationship between residents and municipal staff and seeks to empower citizens to address some of the most pressing issues and quality of life concerns in their neighborhood.

 

Working with the New Horizons Team, residents are able to assist in coordinating the actions of Municipal operations as well as state, federal, and private partner organizations in helping those in our target neighborhoods realize their community vision - one block at a time. Together, residents and the Municipality will embark on a New Horizon for Norristown!

 

If you or your group are interested in volunteering please send an email to the Coordinator of New Horizons,

Kristi Barletta, at kbarletta@norristown.org, or call her at 610-270-0470,
