The Department of Parks and Recreation Neighborhood Services Division (NSD) equips Sacramento's diverse residents with resources to revitalize, maintain and promote healthy communities. We believe a great neighborhood means neighbors knowing each other and having access to available resources. We look to facilitate dialogue and create collaboration opportunities among neighborhood groups, City officials, City departments, and other community stakeholders.
Please contact your NSD representative for any questions or needs regarding your effort to start or improve your neighborhood association.
Neighborhood organizations help keep our community safe, clean, and healthy. The Neighborhood Directory provides contact and boundary information for groups at work in your neighborhood. Search the Neighborhood Directory to find groups in your neighborhood. You may also create a new association. Learn more about starting a neighborhood association.
