Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Neighborhood Planning Office (NPO) was established in 1995 as a direct result of the City's adoption of the Comprehensive Plan. The plan required development of neighborhood plans within four years to improve the quality of life consistent with neighborhood goals and City policies. The neighborhood plans were development through a collaborative process involving City planning staff and neighborhood associations. The NPO was sunset in December 1998 and its functions were transferred to the Department of Neighborhoods which is now responsible for facilitating, monitoring, and coordinating implementation of the adopted plans.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

These tool kits were created by the Neighborhood Planning Office in 1997 to help groups create their City-approved neighborhood plans. The kits gathered together information about City services and programs from a variety of departments. Some documents were standard publications from City agencies – annual reports, directories, etc. – while others appear to have been created specifically for the kits. Documents have dates ranging from 1988 to 1997. Topics covered include housing, zoning and land use, public art, historic preservation, open space, public safety, and the neighborhood matching fund. The collection includes an index listing the contents of the tool kit.
