About Neighborhood Services
The mission of the Office of Neighborhoods and Codes Enforcement is to make government more accessible to the people it serves. This department acts as a conduit for constituents and neighborhood groups to get answers and find solutions to problems, as a resource for technical assistance to neighborhood groups to empower citizens and as a way for government to reach out to its citizens through meaningful public process. Our staff is committed to helping promote active neighborhood involvement in this community.
As recommended by the Safe Neighborhood Task Force, the goal of the Neighborhood Services department is to monitor completion of the following Safe Neighborhood recommendations:
- Develop the capacity of neighborhood watch groups and neighborhood associations to work effectively with city governmental departments in addressing blight, crime, safety and housing issues;
- Develop new neighborhood associations and neighborhood watch groups;
- Develop a mechanism to link any homeowners with code violations to churches and nonprofit organizations that offer repair services;
- Monitor the implementation of the Mayor’s Second Chance Program, a program for ex-offenders leaving prison.
