Block Clubs aka Neighborhood Organizations
The entire territory of Edgewater is organized into block clubs (aka as neighborhood organizations). In the majority of cases the boundaries are defined by major arterial streets. The organizations vary in organization complexity, membership support, and viability. Some like the Lakewood Balmoral Residents Council have been in continous operation from the beginning and enjoy strong membership support from the residents in the area. Others are looser in structure and have less residential support. As one would expect, the areas west of Broadway that have a sizeable number of single family homes are stronger than those east of Broadway that have very few single family homes and many rental apartments and are more transient in nature.
