Neighborhood Beautification

This program provides opportunities for neighborhood associations to contract with the City of Little Rock to cut weed lots in their own neighborhoods.  Neighborhood Beautification may also provide summer employment opportunities for youth as well as fixed-income citizens through their respective neighborhood associations.  For additional information, please contact the Code Enforcement Contracts Section at 501-565-7119.  

Demolition of Unsafe Residential Structures

Residential structures that have been declared unsafe for occupancy by Code Enforcement are submitted to the Little Rock City Board of Directors for condemnation approval.  Once officially condemned, the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Programs awards contracts for the demolition of these structures and supervises the demolition process to ensure that the site is brought in to full compliance with City Ordinance.
