The Neighborhood Services program was developed to assist residents in strengthening the social fabric of their neighborhoods and aid the City Council in connecting with their neighborhoods.

Goals

The Neighborhood Services Program goals are:

1) To provide a direct communication link between the Salinas community, the Councilmembers, and City Departments.

2) To support neighborhood empowerment activities, coordinate the implementation of solutions to neighborhood issues and work collaboratively with community organizations to reduce violence and crime, thereby increasing the number of residents who feel safe within their neighborhood.

Neighborhood Beautification Grant

The Neighborhood Beatification Initiative is designed to help build and foster strong neighborhoods by connecting residents to services and resources that help improve the quality of life in the Salinas Community.
