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.

Mission

The Neighborhood Services Program goals are:

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

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 Clean Ups & Trash Disposal Events 

Neighborhood Services in collaboration with each Councilmember and local service providers, will host an annual neighborhood clean-up in each district. Upcoming dates can be found on our Calendar or by clicking here(DOCX, 13KB).

Neighborhood Problem Solver

The City of Salinas is a great place to live and work, but like all communities, there are times when problems occur which affect our ability to enjoy where we live. To aid the citizens of our community when such problems arise, the Salinas City Council has developed the Neighborhood Problem Solver(PDF, 674KB), a step-by-step guide to help you find solutions to neighborhood problems.

Groups wishing to receive training on the use of the Neighborhood Problem Solver can receive free instruction from the office of Neighborhood Services.
