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.

Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Applications Reopen for Additional Applicants

The City of Liberty’s Preservation and Development Commission has reopened the 2019 Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program for additional applications. This matching program allows residents to identify priorities for their neighborhood and to undertake the enhancement project together. There is approximately $5,000 available for additional grants. 

Two Neighborhood Enhancement Grants have been awarded so far this year:

  • Jewell Neighborhood Group - - $2,972 for rain garden at Lightburne and Franklin streets 
  • Clay Ridge HOA - $2,566 for landscaping enhancements and monument signs

Grant applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. All projects must be completed in 2019. 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, neighborhood park improvements, installing signage for a subdivision, etc.
