Neighborhood Services Programs
The Neighborhood Services Office contributes to the building of organized, involved, connected, safe and attractive neighborhoods by work with neighborhood associations, the City and the broader community. We encourage all members of our community to be actively engaged in civic affairs with a primary focus on providing resources and support to organize and maintain a system of City recognized neighborhood organizations. Participation in a neighborhood organization is open to all residents, property owners and business owners within the City. We do this by:
Building capacity of neighborhood leaders to be effective organizers and representatives of neighborhood issues and concerns.
Educating neighborhood groups and the larger community about opportunities for public participation.
Empowering neighborhood groups to clarify goals and priorities and be effective problem solvers.
Promoting the benefits of participating in neighborhood associations.
Providing forums for discussion of important neighborhood issues.
Providing resources to enhance neighborhood identity.
Empowering youth with a greater understanding of City government and how to become engaged citizens.
Improving communication and collaboration between City government, neighborhood groups and the larger community.
