Welcome to Garland Neighborhoods

The City of Garland actively engages residents in community partnerships promoting the vitality of our neighborhoods. Explore the website to learn more about the City's Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods and how you can join the effort to enhance our community.

Launched in 2006, the Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods (SVN) is a citywide initiative engaging all City departments in a strategic effort to expand upon the Envision Garland Comprehensive Plan (pdf) to advance citywide goals and policies for creating and maintaining a strong community.

Our comprehensive approach to neighborhood vitality begins with you. Contact the Office of Neighborhood Vitality to be equipped and empowered to make a difference where you live.

2015 Neighborhood Summit: Connecting Neighborhoods - Partners for Change

Where: The Hyatt Place - Garland
______ (5101 N. President George Bush Turnpike)
Cost:    $10 per person

Over time, things change. Jobs, technology, circumstances, and even people change. But change is good. It means that our lives are dynamic and vibrant. It presents progress and evolution. Change is full of possibility and opportunity. So how do we benefit from all these changes without sacrificing the core of who we are? How do we take advantage of new innovations without chasing the latest fads? Rather than being led by change, how do we harness the opportunities to direct change to the benefit of our neighborhoods?

At the 2015 Neighborhood Summit, we will hear from panels of experts and neighborhood leaders who will inspire you with practical and effective ways to be instruments of change. Join the conversation!
