Sharpsburg Neighborhood Organization (SNO) was founded in 2014 as an association of residents and community stakeholders interested in improving the community through volunteer projects and initiatives.
Today, our work focuses on improving the quality of life for residents in Sharpsburg by targeting projects, funding, and partners that prioritize community engagement and support our four guiding priorities.
Engage residents—regardless of race, background, sex, orientation, income level, religion, or ability—in an inclusive, visionary community planning process and empower them to lead and participate in local projects and initiatives.
Improve the quality of life in Sharpsburg by promoting responsible, affordable, and equitable property ownership and development that serves the needs of the community and provides a safe environment for renters and homeowners.
Strengthen connections between the community and nature by encouraging the development of a sustainable and connected riverfront that is integrated with the community, improved green infrastructure to manage stormwater and pollution, and expanded access to public green space.
Promote community-oriented economic development that honors and preserves the unique character of Sharpsburg by engaging local businesses and attracting targeted investment that serves the needs of the community and its residents.
