The mission of the Office of Neighborhood Services is to improve the quality of life for Columbia’s residents through fairly and swiftly enforcing city codes related to residential life and build a sense of community by offering valuable volunteer opportunities, providing resources for neighborhood leaders to solve issues independently and managing donations to support our community.
The Neighborhood Leadership Program (NLP) is a four-session series on topics related to expanding knowledge of Columbia city government and increasing personal leadership skills to help strengthen the City’s neighborhoods. Sessions will include a variety of local speakers including elected officials, city staff and neighborhood leaders. The NLP is sponsored by the Community Development Department’s Office of Neighborhood Services, University of Missouri Extension and Pednet.Please take a few moments to review the brochure posted below to learn more about the 2013 NLP.
