From the City of Sacramento Department of Neighborhood Services newsletter The Bridge.
By Yvonne Riedlinger, Program Analyst serving Council District 4
It’s the little thing we do in Neighborhood Services that can make such a big difference. It’s often difficult to highlight just one project or event that we assist residents with because there are so many little things we do to support our neighborhoods. Neighborhood Services staff attends community, neighborhood, and business association meetings to lend support and to answer questions about the City of Sacramento. We refer and listen to complaints of every nature and do our best to resolve those issues or make sure they get to the department and staff who can help. We encourage our neighborhood and business associations during good times, but more importantly during the challenging times.
As we approach the end of the year it’s a time to reflect and look back at the accomplishment we have made, and most importantly those that we did together with our neighbors, such as, Family Movie Nights in the Park, Family Fitness Day, and Jazz in the Park Concerts. It’s also a time to plan for the new year and to think about the accomplishments yet to come.
So, it’s with pleasure the Neighborhood Services Department and I take this opportunity to thank the residents of Council District 4 and the neighborhood and business associations including, capitol Area R Street, Fremont Park, Richmond Grove, College Plaza, Freeport Renovation on the Move, Newton Booth, Land Park, Z’Berg park, South Land Park, Little Pocket, Upper Land Park, Southside Park, Beverly Way and the Greater Broadway Partnership, for working together to accomplish all the “little things.”
