Neighborhood Enhancement Program

The Neighborhood Enhancement Program is a city-funded program that empowers residents to propose and select modest, capital projects to enhance their neighborhoods. The program rotates through the city's 14 NEP neighborhood areas over the course of seven years, serving two areas each year. The $5 million program allocation is distributed among each of the NEP neighborhood areas, according to the number of households in each area.


Residents submit project ideas (mail, website or kick-off meeting).


Staff review project ideas using screening criteria and generate ballot projects.


Residents review and comment on ballot projects (open house or website).


Households in the Neighborhood Area receive ballots to vote for three projects of their choice.


The city implements projects that receive the most votes within five years.
