Code Enforcement: learn about the City's rental inspection, weeds, trash and snow removal codes and how they are enforced. Also learn about the City's Unified Development Ordinance.

Historic Preservation: determine if your house is within a historic district, if it is individually designated, and what regulations govern these types of properties.

Housing Programs: do you, a relative or friend need to make a home repair or modification, but are not sure how to cover the cost? You may be eligible for assistance through a grant and/or loan housing program.

Housing Counseling: explore certified housing counseling services for residents seeking to buy their first home or to prevent foreclosure on their existing home.

Bloomington Police Department: learn about Neighborhood Watch programs, and find out what constitutes suspicious activity and how to report it to the Bloomington Police Department.

Neighborhood Communications and Organizing: gather support for your neighborhood, from organizing a neighborhood association to communicating effectively with your neighbors.

Indiana University Dean of Students Office: ask questions about IU's policies for off-campus students and support services (counseling services, student legal services, alcohol and drug education, and the IU Police Department).
