Please take our 5 minute survey! 

Over 20 years ago, the Benton Park Neighborhood Association (BPNA) was created to provide programs for the community, encourage connections between neighbors and foster civic involvement. Like all historic neighborhoods, Benton Park has experienced significant change over the years. The BPNA’s programs have evolved with the community it represents. Still, we celebrate and value the people, places and history that make our neighborhood a desirable place to live. 

Recently, we decided to take a step back and reevaluate how we spend our time and resources. We want to ensure that none of our neighbors are left on the sidelines and this is an inclusive community to live, work and play. In this spirit, the Benton Park Neighborhood Association formed a subcommittee to explore the possibility of creating a Neighbor Assist Programto help residents with anything from simple household tasks to home repairs. We are reaching out to all 3,931 of you to gather data and see what you think. 

Participation in the survey is voluntary.  All responses are confidential and will only be used in statistical summaries. We are simply trying to assess if a Neighbor Assist Program would be beneficial to Benton Park, and what residents have the greatest need. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact

We look forward to hearing from you!
