Building a Spirit of Place is a Keene community development and beautification project supported by the community, businesses and civic organizations. We seek to enhance the appearance of Keene while building a sense of pride and community spirit, thereby improving the environmental, economic, and social well-being of our city and its neighborhoods for today and tomorrow. We embrace the proposition that citizens can create and shape the communities in which they live. We challenge organizations and individuals to enhance the appearance of their community, while building a sense of involvement and pride.
We envision a strong, vibrant place where the health and well-being of Keene and the people who live, play, study and work here are nourished and supported. We visualize a community where our residents work together and participate in a meaningful communal life. Building a Spirit of Place seeks to fosters pride and awareness working together for our city and the quality of life for those who call Keene home.
We challenge you to help us deepen the value and appeal of Keene, while awakening community pride. Volunteer, donate, spread the word – get involved!
