NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

Neighborhood Watch programs provide residents with the feeling of ownership for their community by promoting the belief it is everyone's responsibility to see that their community is a safer place to live.


Neighborhood Watch encourages residents to be alert for suspicious activity in the area and interact with each other by exchanging information about work schedules, vacation plans, types of vehicles belonging to residents, etc. Regular monthly meetings offers residents’ updated information on current crime trends and allows residents the opportunity to plan watch programs for their area.


ADVANTAGES OF NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH INCLUDES:

 Reduces crime and prevents crime

 Provides direct contact with the Police Department

 Increases awareness about activity in the City of Melbourne

 Helps neighbors get to know each other

 Assist the Police Department with crime prevention efforts


For more information on forming a Neighborhood Watch program in your area, please contact the Nazareth Police Department at 610-759-9575.

The Nazareth Farmers' Market, established in 2010, has always been a labor of love from local merchants direct to the Nazareth Community.

Nazareth Farmers’ Market is a producer only market, which means that you are buying product from the person who produced it. The market features 17+ vendors selling locally grown produce, prepared foods and crafts and operates in Center Square from 9 am to 1 pm, May through October. We also host Holiday Markets in November and December.

Farm fresh produce, artisan cheese, homemade baked goods, flowers, peanut butter, strudel, grass-fed meats, biscotti, pierogies, beef jerky, honey,  kiffle,  cooking oils, bbq as well as handmade soaps, jewelry, dog treats & more!

Nazareth Farmers’ Market attracts an average of 500 customers each week to a wonderful park like setting in the heart of Nazareth!

​​

The Nazareth Economic Development Commission is a duly authorized 501c3 commission under the auspices of the Nazareth Borough Council, chartered to operate independently to bring about economic revitalization into the Nazareth Downtown Business District.


Our mission is to advance the prosperity of Nazareth Borough through the talents and strengths of the commission members by working together for the betterment and economic growth of the community. It will strive to assure a favorable business community climate for implementing new ideas and economic growth.


The Main Street Four-Point Approach

NEDC follows the Main Street Four-Point Approach. If you would like to serve on one of these four committees, please contact the downtown manager nazdowntownmgr@gmail.com

ECONOMIC VITALITY - STRENGTHEN BUSINESS

Economic Vitality strengthens a community’s existing economic assets while diversifying its economic base. By helping existing businesses expand and recruiting new ones to respond to today’s market, Main Street programs help convert unused or underutilized space into economically productive property and sharpen the competitiveness and profitability of businesses.

Example Actions:
Learning about the district’s current economic condition and identifying opportunities for growth, strengthening existing businesses and recruiting new ones
Finding new economic uses for traditional Main Street buildings

Developing financial incentives and capital for building rehabilitations and business development, monitoring the economic performance of the district

PROMOTION - REKINDLE COMMUNITY PRIDE

Promotion means selling the image and promise of Main Street to all prospects. By marketing the district’s unique characteristics to shoppers, investors, new businesses, and visitors, an effective promotion strategy forges a positive image through advertising, retail promotional activity, special events, and marketing campaigns carried out by local volunteers. It serves to improve consumer and investor confidence in the district.

Example Actions:
Creating image campaigns, retail promotions, and special events — to lure people downtown,Marketing an enticing image, social media campaigns, street festivals, parades and special events

DESIGN - CREATE AN INVITING ENVIROMENT

Design getting Main Street into top physical shape. Capitalizing on its best assets—such as historic buildings and traditional pedestrian-oriented layouts is just part of the story. An inviting atmosphere, created through window displays, parking areas, building improvements, street furniture, signs, sidewalks, street lights, and landscaping, conveys a visual message about what the commercial district is and what it has to offer.

Example Actions:
Educating others about good design —  enhancing the image of each business as well as that of the district Providing good design advice— encouraging quality improvements to private properties and public spaces Planning Main Street’s development— guiding future growth and shaping regulations Motivating others to make changes— creating incentives and targeting key projects

ORGANIZATION - BUILD PARTNERSHIPS

Organization means getting everyone working toward the same goal. Using a volunteer-driven program with an organizational structure of a governing board and committees can ease the tough work of building consensus and cooperation among the groups that have an important stake in the district.

Example Actions:
Raising money — for projects and administration, from donations and sponsorships
Managing staff and volunteers — by recruiting people, supervising them, and rewarding good work Promoting the program — to downtown interests and the public
Managing finances — by developing good accounting procedures

VOTER INFO

VOTER INFO

The Borough of Nazareth is divided into three relatively equal (in terms of population) voting wards. The "equalizing" process occurs every ten years after the official U.S. Census and Borough Council then sends on its redistricting final recommendations to the Northampton County Election Office. Although the actual boundaries are slightly skewed for reasons of equalizing the wards, the northern portion of the Borough, north of Center Street, is the First Ward with very few exceptions. The central portion of the Borough, south of Center Street and north of Prospect Street is generally the Second Ward and the southern portion of the Borough and the Borough's West End, make up the Third Ward. 


Voting, registering to vote and staffing polling places are all things which the Northampton County Election Office administers. If you are not registered to vote and wish to vote or have questions about voting, wards and/or polling places, only the Northampton County Election Office is authorized to service you. The Borough of Nazareth has no say or jurisdiction in election matters other than to provide polling places for each Borough ward.
