Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Department of Neighborhoods was created in 1991 by consolidating staff from the Executive Department's Citizens Service Bureau and Office of Neighborhoods, the Community Service Centers of the Department of Human Resources, and the Neighborhood Assistance Division of the Department of Community Development. The Office of Urban Conservation, the City's historic preservation agency, was added in 1992. The following year, the department added a community development function by taking over projects in the Central Area, Southeast Seattle, and the Port of Seattle. In 1999, the Neighborhood Planning Office was abolished and its continuing functions were assumed by the Department of Neighborhoods. The Department's mission is to bring local government closer to the citizens by maintaining a responsive presence in Seattle neighborhoods, by responding to citizen concerns and complaints, and providing a communications link for neighborhoods on City issues that will have an impact on them. The department operates the Neighborhood Service Centers (Little City Halls), administers the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program, staffs the Landmarks Preservation Board, and manages the P-Patch program.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Records relating to Neighborhood Matching Fund Special Projects grants from the External Beautification Fund for Seattle Public Schools. The Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) program, created in 1988, provides financial assistance for community-driven neighborhood development projects. In 1996 and 1997 the Fund set aside enough money for each public school to receive about $1000 for an external beautification project. Each school had to provide a matching portion of monetary donations, as well as volunteer hours, and often supplies as well. Projects included painting buildings, creation of gardens, enhancement of entryways, creation of murals, grounds clean-up, installation of benches and picnic tables, construction of storage sheds, renovation of flower beds, and tree plantings. Types of records include grant applications, agreements, amendments, progress reports, final reports, newspaper clippings, newsletters, site maps, work plans, and photos.
