Reinvesting in Carrollton... One neighborhood at a time!
A new initiative was begun in 2002 that annually targets a specific neighborhood for comprehensive infrastructure repair and replacement in a concentrated and coordinated manner. The award-winning NOTICE program (Neighborhood-Oriented Targeted Infrastructure & Code Enforcement) uses funding from multiple sources and applies it in a targeted neighborhood to repair deteriorated infrastructure in a single initiative. At the same time a concerted code enforcement effort is initiated in the neighborhood. The program allocates public funding to improve the neighborhood infrastructure while property owners are held accountable to maintain or bring their property into compliance with city codes.
22 neighborhoods have been designated for NOTICE funding.
The goal of NOTICE is to
- Foster a greater sense of neighborhood pride
- Promote the emergence of healthier, sustainable neighborhoods
The NOTICE neighborhoods completed to date are Rollingwood Estates, Oak Tree North, Holiday Park, Park Terrace, Francis Perry Estates, Park Place, Carrollton Highlands, Keller Springs Village/Two Worlds and Hill ‘n Dale.
- Over $63 million has been invested in NOTICE neighborhoods
- About 126 miles of utility lines, sidewalks, streets and alleys have been repaired or replaced
NOTICE projects are currently underway in the Santa Rosa, Carrollton Downs, Palo Alto and Jackson Arms neighborhoods.
The results of these investments are promising. Appraised property values in completed NOTICE neighborhoods have increased at a slightly higher rate compared to the surrounding neighborhoods, while observed code violations declined significantly in these neighborhoods.
