The mission of the Office of Neighborhood Services is to improve the quality of life for Columbia’s residents through fairly and swiftly enforcing city codes related to residential life and build a sense of community by offering valuable volunteer opportunities, providing resources for neighborhood leaders to solve issues independently and managing donations to support our community.
Please join Neighborhood Watch as we celebrate our annual Night Out on Tuesday, August 5th . We encourage every Neighborhood Watch group to participate by hosting some sort of social event that evening. Last year we had groups that held block parties, BBQ's, neighborhood meetings and one group even held an ice cream social at their fire station. Be as creative as you want! Just get out of the house and socialize with your neighbors.
I would appreciate it greatly if you would email me some basic information about your event so I can let the beat officers know. Our beat officers enjoy getting out of the cruiser and socializing.
Please forward me:
Help us make Night Out 2014 the largest event in Columbia's history! I look forward to hearing from you soon.
