Neighborhood Services

Welcome to the Neighborhood Service Delivery Initiative
The Neighborhood Service Delivery Initiative (NSDI) was created as part of City Manager Jeff Pomeranz’s vision to bring City staff and services together to better address community concerns and strengthen relationships with neighborhood associations.

The Neighborhood Service Delivery Initiative Goals:

  • Improve Safety

  • Improve Property Maintenance

  • Improve Infrastructure

  • Improve Connection between the Neighborhoods and City

  • Improve City Responsiveness to Neighborhood Issues

  • Build Relationships with Neighborhoods

  • Bring Government Closer to People Served

  • Increase Visibility

City Staff and Neighborhood Support 
Members of the City’s senior management team will provide direct support to communities by serving as liaisons between the City and neighborhood associations. Each City Director is assigned to a neighborhood association, and will attend neighborhood association meetings and act as the point of contact for community members that have questions about city services and programs.

City Directors will also work with teams from different City departments to respond and address community concerns. Representatives have been assigned from Code Enforcement, Community Development, Fire, Parks & Recreation, Police, Public Works, and Utilities departments. 

To find out more about the Neighborhood Service Delivery Initiative, contact Iván Gonzalez at 319-286-5428 or i.gonzalez@cedar-rapids.org.
