The City of Olympia recently updated information about neighborhood resources on their Neighborhood Programs web page.
For your convenience, those resources and several others are listed here. .
Want to Stop Receiving Ad Flyers in Your Front Yard?
Those rolled and wrapped flyers that appear in your front yard or driveway can be stopped. The Olympian distributes the “Extra” paper to non-subscribers of The Olympian. The best and quickest way to get the paper stopped is for the homeowner call customer service and request a stop. 1-800-905-0296. The paper carriers should then be directed by circulation managers to stop delivering these papers.
Contact Thurston County Animal Control Services to report stray or dangerous animals.
Coalition of Neighborhood Associations
(CNA) The mission of CNA is “to promote and enhance the quality of life in our neighborhoods by providing a forum to collaborate to achieve common goals.” This is where you go to address issues that affect every neighborhood.
Report problems such as trash, debris, overgrown vegetation encroaching the right-of-way, and inoperable and unlicensed vehicles on private property.
Have a problem with graffiti in your neighborhood? The Public Works Department provides free graffiti removal kits to recognized Neighborhood Associations & Block Watch groups. To request a kit, call (360) 753-8588, or email Public Works
Neighborhood Crime Mapping Service
This free on-line crime mapping service will let you see police activity that has occurred in the City on a Google-style map. Read through the Neighborhood Crime Mapping paragraph and click through to download the map. Enter a specific address and see what crime has happened in the vicinity of your neighborhood or pan the map to see activity City-wide.
Neighborhood Crossroads Program
This program encourages people to create a gathering space for their neighborhood, a place for community interaction and celebrations. An added benefit may be to slow down drivers, making the streets safer for everyone.
Neighborhood Traffic Management Program
(NTMP) NTMP helps residents address traffic concerns in their neighborhood. Neighbors nominate their street for speed control devices, and work with City staff to plan and build their devices.
Walking Route Brochures:
New sidewalks create, complete, and enhance recreational walking routes that link neighborhoods, parks, and schools. Projects identified in the Parks and Pathways program are outlined in the City of Olympia’s Sidewalk Project page
