A Neighborhood Pride Zone (NPZ) is an area established by residents with the sole purpose of preserving their community. Residents serve as neighborhood stewards and agree to commit neighborhood resources, such as volunteer hours and/or professional expertise, toward graffiti and trash removal, promoting the overall beautification of their neighborhood.
Organizing a NPZ in your area will help to raise and maintain the quality of life in your community. Because the challenge of beautifying and preserving neighborhoods throughout Clark County has never been greater, we encourage residents to work together to build community pride and maintain the communities in which they live. By creating a Pride Zone in your area, you will receive support to begin or sustain such an effort, and your community will be recognized for its hard work.
How to Create a Neighborhood Pride Zone
You'll need a group of dedicated people who are willing to be neighborhood stewards, learning to cover graffiti and helping maintain a clean neighborhood. Talk with your neighbors or write a letter requesting that interested residents contact you.
Complete an NPZ application and an NPZ consultant will be happy to meet with your group and help you get started.
Residents of the Pride Zone will be responsible for removing unsightly graffiti, rubbish and debris. We encourage you to have everyone in the community help with the efforts of the Neighborhood Pride Zone.
The Public Response Office will provide:
- Graffiti Removal Training
- Supplies for removing graffiti, trash and debris
- Educational information
- Pride Zone signs designating your NPZ area
- Info on availability of neighborhood grants
