Neighborhood Issues

Functions & Roles

The Office of Neighborhoods functions as the voice of neighborhoods within City-Parish government. We communicate with individuals, neighborhoods and civic associations, lead dialogues about the problems they face, and work together with the rest of City-Parish government to find solutions. The Office of Neighborhoods is your liaison to City-Parish government. Contact us to help you with a problem or if you are in need of information.

If your civic association has been inactive and you’d like to revive it or if your neighborhood doesn’t have one and you’d like to start one, please contact us at 225-389-3039, ext. 106, or at our email. We can help you write your by-laws and lead you through every step of the way. Listed on this page are some of the issues that East Baton Rouge Parish neighborhoods are facing and tips for addressing them.
