Timing and Location
HNN Neighborhood gatherings can happen any month of the year and can be held wherever you prefer, based on the season, time of day and day of week. If you choose to hold an event on the street, you need to complete an event application for the Town of Hillsborough, and show proof of liability insurance for the event. This is only required for events on the public right of way. HNN will cover the cost of the insurance for one party per neighborhood.
If you would like to have a topic for your event, our standard ones are: earthquake, wildfire, emergency communications, and crime prevention. We have materials available for you. We can also schedule Central County Fire, Hillsborough Police Department, or other experts to attend and present at your event. Just contact the HNN Coordinator by email to discuss your plans.
