Under Mayor Jones’ leadership, the City’s Office of Special Events and the Main Street Mobile offices have merged to form the new Neighborhood & Community Services office.

Through our combined efforts, we are taking our revitalization efforts into all seven districts by engaging our neighborhood action groups and citizens so that they are more informed and aware of the services that the entire City can and does provides them.

Our goals are:
To enrich neighborhoods & communities
• Promote community building
• Design community special events
• Develop improvement strategies
• Enhance leadership of community members
• And facilitate communication between citizens and their local government

What we’re doing:
An annual neighborhood & community awards recognition ceremony
• Annual Litter and Trash Summit
• Establish a Neighborhood College
• Create a Mobile Connection Newsletter for neighborhoods
• Produce numerous city-wide special events
• Work with neighborhood organizations to create or enhance events there

The Dauphin Street office produces:
• Brown Bag in Bienville Concerts
• Sunday Concert Series in the Spring
• 4th of July Celebration
• Kids Days in both Bienville and Langan Parks
• BayFest
• The Mobile International Festival
• Santa’s Calling
• The Mobile Christmas & Holiday Parade
• & the New Year’s Eve Celebration
• Arts Alive! Hands On
• The monthly LoDa ArtWalks
• The Market on the Square
• The Market in the Park

We also help community organizations navigate through working with the City and are currently working on programs to get us into all 7 districts.

We also invite neighborhood organizations and CAG groups to list events on our website so that you may learn about what is going on in other districts and areas.

It is our goal to help you share best practices and grow your relationship with our administration.
