What does the city of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office do?

The city's Historic Preservation Office works to protect and enhance historic Phoenix neighborhoods, buildings and sites in Historic Phoenix. The city's Historic Preservation Office works closely with the city's Historic Preservation Commission to identify and designate those properties and districts eligible for listing on the Phoenix Historic Property Register. Protection is provided to designated properties through city review and approval of exterior alterations to buildings and demolition requests. The office also administers the Historic Preservation Bond fund that supports a number of financial assistance programs for historic properties. Rehabilitation training and educational activities are offered by the city Historic Preservation Office to heighten public awareness and appreciation for the community's historic resources.

What is the city of Phoenix Neighborhood Services?

The city of Phoenix created the Neighborhood Services Department to preserve and revitalize neighborhoods, and help residents access city services. The department approach to project- and problem-management emphasizes partnerships between residents, business owners, elected officials, and city employees to build and preserve clean, safe neighborhoods that reflect the diversity of the city's population. The city's investment in healthy neighborhoods is ultimately an investment in people, in a sense of community, and in an ethic of shared pride.
