Community Development

The City's Community Development activities are focused on helping low to moderate income residents acquire needed information, knowledge and skills to improve their employment opportunities, beautification programs to help improve community appearances, and capacity building activities to help non-profit organizations to become more productive. In addition the City provides assistance to help low income residents pay assessment fees for their share of capital improvement cost.

Beautification Program

The Beautification Program fosters neighborhood pride in low to moderate income communities by providing funding for erection of neighborhood signs, landscaping and demolition/clearance projects. (Complete brochure can be downloaded at the bottom of this page)

Water and Sewer Assessment Assistance Program

The Water and Sewer Assessment Assistance Program provides grants for low to moderate income homeowners for fees up to $2000 that are assessed when water and/or sewer is made available to a neighborhood. Also, a $900 grant is available to assist low to moderate income homeowners with the cost of hiring a licensed plumber to connect the structure to the new line.
