How to Throw a Neighborhood Party!

How many of your neighbors do you know?  No matter if you just moved to a new neighborhood, or if you’ve lived there all your life, it can understandably be hard to meet most of your neighbors.  Deciding to organize a neighborhood party is one of the best ways to meet those that you don’t already know as well as create community spirit.

However if you decide to organize one without enlisting help, or don’t have the proper know-how, you may quickly cause yourself to become overwhelmed.   With our simple neighborhood party tips, you and your neighbors will receive maximum enjoyment, without shelling out a lot of dough.

 Tip #1 – Enlist Neighbors to Help

We recommend enlisting a group of 5 to 6 dedicated volunteers to help you organize.    Once you have enlisted enough volunteers then you can assign tasks.  For example, if you’re planning to have activities for the kiddos, you’ll need someone to oversee the activities so that nothing goes awry.

Tip #2 – Receive a City Permit

While this may not be needed in some communities it is best to check with your local Arizona representative to avoid being shut down or fined.

Tip #3 – Send out Invitations

Probably one of the most cost-effective ways to get the word out is to make your own fliers with your personal computer, print out however many copies you think you’ll need, and distribute them throughout the neighborhood.  Here is where you can also enlist the help of your kids – putting them in charge of flyer delivery – they’ll love it.

Tip #4 – Safety Precautions

Ensure that you have taken every safety precaution that you can possibly think of: food preparation and storage, supervision of children, lighting is in place and that you have barricaded off the area (especially in larger residential neighborhoods) so that no one can drive through your party: just to name a few.  Action Barricade rents everything you will need, such as barricades and lighting, to block off your chosen party venue.

What is the Goal of the Project… ?!

 

Safety is always important in any type of task and/or events. Here at Action Barricade, we have all your traffic control equipment needs in order to keep every person safe while starting and complete each project. Each project requires different traffic control equipment to accomplish that specific task, for example, if the goal is to perform construction work overnight, light towers would be recommended, while construction during the day may require traffic cones, and so forth.

Knowing what is need for each project and/or task is crucial in starting and completing it. Just like any other project we were told to create while in school, starting at the brainstorming stage is important. This allows for questions that can be considered and answered before even arriving at Action Barricade. Important questions to considered are as follows:

What am I trying to accomplish?

How long will this project take?

What traffic control equipment is best for the specific needs?

When and where will this project take place?

How can Action Barricade help in completing each project?

Spending time on trying to answer these questions and coming up with more questions will essentially help to better understand the project as a whole. Even if the answer to the question is unknown, for example, “How can Action Barricade help…”, just let us know the plan and ask all your questions, and we will come up with the rest. We provide assistance in traffic control plans and service. This means helping with the initial plan or the current plan. We have traffic control equipment to suite each demand, such as, arrow boards, temporary concrete barriers, even temporary water-filled barriers, and so much more.

Even having experience in the field, these questions help to establish a solid plan that can be executed through the knowledge of what materials and equipment must be used to complete the task. We work and assist anyone who needs traffic control devices and equipment!!

Is your project coming up? Take a seat and begin brainstorming for the best solutions for each project. Get creative and draw, write, chicken scratch, or any other method that works best for you in creating the perfect plan. Then stop by or give us a call at (602) 288-6350 to discuss all the traffic control equipment that is needed to get the job done efficiently and without any harm to others and employees!!
