Community Engagement

The Valparaiso Community Engagement Department is responsible for cultivating safe, vibrant neighborhoods, building cross-sector partnerships and welcoming diversity.  This department can be your resource to learn more about what is happening at the City and opportunities to get involved.  

The Community Engagement Department works across department lines to get results for resident requests, problems and questions.  They are responsible for coordinating the exchange of information among residents, neighborhood organizations and City staff.  Whether it’s cleaning an alley, replacing a burned-out street light, arranging for grass in a public right-of-way to be cut, the Community Engagement Department is there to connect you with the right people to get the job done.  

This newly-created department grew out of the City’s ValpoNEXT Vision Plan and will help to further connect neighborhoods and advance inclusion in our community by building partnerships and uniting people.
