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.
