Neighborhood Clean Up Program

As areas in the city mature, neighborhoods require concentrated revitalization efforts in order to maintain a strong Scottsdale community.

Through Scottsdale's Neighborhood Revitalization Program, we are committed to helping maintain the vitality of our original community by focusing on aesthetic improvements and promoting well-maintained and safe neighborhoods.

As part of this program, the city is providing two FREE services under the Neighborhood Clean up Program to residents/volunteers who organize neighborhood clean up efforts.
