5 Steps Toward a Better Neighborhood

For any problem, there is a solution just like any good neighborhood can be great! Here are a few ways to get started.

  1. Get on Nextdoor! Chances are, your neighbors are already together online discussing neighborhood issues on this private social network for neighbors. It is free!
  2. Clean it Up!  Each household in Cape gets one free annual special Wednesday pick-up of bulk trash. Schedule a pick-up for yourself or your neighborhood by calling Public Works at 573-339-6351. Get some neighbors to help you bag and drag that trash out of your neighborhood. Find more solid waste removal options at cityofcape.org/solidwaste.
  3. Nix the Nuisances! Talk to your neighbors when you can about parking, noises, outdoor storage and other issues as needed. If you need help, call us at 339-6311 or submit problems online.
  4. Start a Watch. Work with our Community Service Officers to start a Neighborhood Watch.
  5. Throw a Party!  We can help you with a special event permit if you need to close a street. Google can help you with the rest.

Flowers, events and more! What other ideas do you have?
