Neighborhood Services Division
Neighbors Chatting

The Neighborhood Services Division exists to help Joplin neighbors build safe, strong and vibrant neighborhoods. 


The Neighborhood Services Division seeks to build TRUST with Joplin residents, community partners and fellow City staff through:

  • Teamwork
  • Service
  • Follow-through                                                             
  • Communication
  • Collaboration


The vision to see safe, strong, and vibrant neighborhoods begins as our division becomes a resource for Joplin neighbors through: 

1. ENFORCEMENT: We enforce city property and nuisance codes through routine inspections, responding to neighbor’s requests, using the court process, abating properties using private contractors, and increasing fines for repeat offenders.

2. EDUCATION: We educate neighbors through flyers/handouts, personal visits, and the Nextdoor social media site.
