The City has created the Neighborhood Services Department to unify Animal Care Services, Code Enforcement, Grant Monitoring, Homeless Services & Workforce Housing “under one roof” to provide better accessibility to services and more efficiently resolve issues while focusing on safety, revitalization, and stability of our neighborhoods.

Enhance our citizens’ quality of life by consolidating neighborhood services under one department to promote and support neighborhood sustainability, growth, and safety.

Connecting residents to services, promoting long-term property maintenance, fostering revitalization, and supporting in-fill housing efforts will bring lasting improvement to appearance, value, safety, and stability in our neighborhoods that strengthens our community, city-wide.

To better serve the community, the Department focuses services at the neighborhood level to identify and correct specific issues and problems. The Neighborhood Services Department is responsible to resolve code compliance and animal care matters that affect individuals and their homes, neighborhoods, and the larger community. The Neighborhood Services Department provides information, connections to assistance, administers funding, and monitors programs that directly contribute to the wellness and stability of neighborhoods throughout the City of Corpus Christi.
