The Neighborhood Liaisons are a team of advocates created to work across department lines to get results for resident requests, problems and questions. The liaisons are responsible for three tasks:
- Coordinating the exchange of information among residents, neighborhood organizations and city staff
- Providing technical assistance and serving as an advocate on neighborhood issues.
- Coordinating the investment of city resources in the neighborhoods
The city has been divided into service areas and a liaison has been assigned to each of the areas to work directly with the residents and neighborhood organizations. Whether it’s cleaning an alley, replacing a burned out street light, arranging for grass in a public right-of-way to be cut, the Neighborhood Liaisons are there to connect you with the right people to get the job done – and you need only make one phone call.
Each Neighborhood Liaison also serves a specific Area Commission and/or a Civic Association by working to assist the organization with any issue involving the better delivery of City services.
