The Neighborhood Services Initiatives is a result of information gathered from Community Alliance surveys and comments from neighborhood organizations. The ongoing comments from community surveys as well as public input have identified opportunities to empower residents of St. Joseph’s distressed neighborhoods to improve their quality of life ultimately creating a more progressive and attractive St. Joseph. With this need comes increase emphasis for the City to create new programs to accomplish these goals.
The Neighborhood Services Initiative identifies what the City of St. Joseph proposes to accomplish through short term and long term goals by addressing comments provided by the public as perceived needs of the community. City Staff has developed priority needs, goals, objectives and outcomes from input received during the citizen participation process.
