The Neighborhood Services Department offers a wide variety of programs and services that serve to enhance the quality of life by strengthening community image, neighborhood safety and security, supporting economic development and environmental resources, promoting health, wellness and recreation, fostering human development and increasing cultural unity and community problem solving for people of all ages.

The Division works with a variety of non-profit agencies, governmental agencies, and businesses in providing housing assistance to the community. The Division also enforces City Code regulations that address conditions on private property such as substandard dwelling units, inoperable or abandoned vehicles, accumulations of trash and debris, noise, dust, offensive odors, and abandoned buildings.  The Parks and Recreation Division offers a wide variety of programs and services for people of all ages through in the following areas: Youth Development, Sports and Athletics, Recreation Classes, Aquatics, Senior Services, and Special Events.
