Strategy For Vital Neighborhoods

Initiated in 2006, the Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods is a citywide initiative addressing the issues facing Garland's neighborhoods. The Strategy provides coordination for citywide and targeted area activities through a neighborhood resource team, neighborhood vitality programs, and planning activities.  

The Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods initiative engages all City departments in a strategic effort and expands upon the Envision Garland Comprehensive Plan (PDF) to advance citywide goals and policies for creating and maintaining a strong community. Our comprehensive approach to neighborhood vitality begins with you. Join the partnership for strategic investment in our neighborhoods to find opportunities to become more engaged in our community and to access tools that support each resident's ability to manage the needs of their neighborhoods.
