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.
The most recent Neighborhood Congress was held on Saturday, March 17, 2012. The purpose of the Neighborhood Congress is to foster greater communication between residents and the City. The Congress also allows for networking among community leaders. Concurrent sessions were held on Growth Management, the Neighborhood Response Team, Planning and Development Issues and Successful Neighborhood Stories.
