The City of Des Moines currently has 52 areas of the city that have recognized neighborhood associations. These groups of volunteers work to make their neighborhood and our city as a whole a better place to live.
Your neighborhood association is the best place to reach out for information and help specific to your immediate neighborhood.
These community groups work alongside the City’s recognized neighborhood associations to support specific projects, conduct outreach, and further advocate for civic improvements.
