The extent of a neighborhood is variable and may be defined by tradition, organizational boundaries, the period of building and development, or subdivision patterns. Neighborhood boundaries may include such features as major streets or other physical elements. associations, scouts, schools, churches, and individuals all donate their time to help clean up the Fountain Creek Watershed.
