Neighborhoods

Neighborhood organizations are an important element in any city. They give residents a way to connect, not only with their surrounding neighbors, but with local government officials and provide a venue through which to form partnerships that can help to improve life and livability in any neighborhood.

The Community Development Division is responsible for providing support services to Liberty's neighborhoods.

Liberty has a diverse mixture of neighborhoods, a number of which are organized either through homes associations or neighborhood groups.

Want to start a neighborhood group or expand an existing one?


Staff is available to provide resources to assist new groups, groups that have fallen dormant, and existing groups that wish to expand their impact or effectiveness.

2017 Neighborhood Enhancement Grants


The City of Liberty’s Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program helps residents reinvest in their own neighborhoods. With $10,000 in the City’s budget, this matching program allows residents to identify priorities for their neighborhood and to undertake the enhancement project together.

Grant awards could range from $500 to $10,000, depending on the scope of the project, the number of grant proposals received, and the funding available. To be eligible for a grant:

  • The neighborhood must be organized as a neighborhood or homeowners’ association and be registered with the city. The association is not required to be incorporated or have tax exempt status, but must have an elected board and adopted by-laws. 
  • The project must be something that benefits the entire neighborhood and must be located in the city’s right-of-way. Examples of eligible projects include: landscaping, planting street trees, or installing signage for a neighborhood watch or subdivision. 
  • Neighborhoods must provide a 25 percent match to the cost of the project, which could be met through the value of donated services, materials, and labor in addition to cash. 

Grant awards are competitive and selected by the city’s Preservation and Development Commission, who consider feasibility, need, and potential impact to the neighborhood and community when selecting grantees.
