Neighborhood preservation and good relations between neighbors are encouraged through proactive property maintenance sweeps in each neighborhood, as well as in response to citizen complaints and concerns. Maintaining properties in good condition helps to prevent accidents and illnesses, as well as to preserve the housing stock. Solid, attractive housing reduces the risk of crime while attracting responsible new homeowners.

The Community Development Department staff work with City departments, nonprofit agencies, businesses, and citizens to help keep properties and the environment safe, attractive, and maintained to community standards.
