Neighborhood Enhancement Program 

The Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) raises awareness of the importance of keeping homes and business properties in good repair in an effort to maintain our quality neighborhoods and to protect property values throughout our community. 

Each year, staff will use the yellow door hanger (see attachment in resources tab on the right) as a method to provide greater efficiency in notification when concerns are found.  

NEP Purpose

  • Opportunity to inform property owners about specific City regulations and encourages routine maintenance before a problem becomes more severe and costly to fix. 
  • Staff works with property owners to remedy any violations. 
  • Since 2008, the City annually visits more than 4,600 properties.

We appreciate the strong community support for the City’s efforts to promote greater awareness of the value and benefits of maintaining our quality business and residential areas, and we appreciate our property owners’ commitment to maintaining their properties.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact City staff at 651-792-7014 or
