What is the Neighborhood Liaison Program?
The Neighborhood Liaison Program was established in 1990 by City Council. The goal is to improve living conditions in city neighborhoods with special emphasis on the central city. The program is intended to assist people in solving their own problems.
The Neighborhood Liaison serves as a collaborative link between the Holland Police Department, Community Neighborhood Services, and other city departments and area residents, businesses, schools, youth, civic organizations and neighborhoods. By working together, residents can improve conditions in their neighborhoods, and enrich the quality of life for themselves and their neighbors.
The Neighborhood Liason also serves as an overall organizer of neighborhood groups, meetings and other activities.
