Neighborhood Plans

The City recognizes that its older neighborhoods pose unique challenges as they continue to age and evolve.  In 2004 the City Council commissioned a Residential Building Condition Survey that, in conjunction with the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, prioritized four neighborhoods for focused improvement efforts. 

These efforts were followed by a series of neighborhood meetings and resident collaboration where by citizens guided Staff in developing four corresponding neighborhood plans.  These plans are responsible for a number of  neighborhood-wide improvements, including everything from sidewalks and drainage upgrades to economic development strategies.
