Frequently Asked Questions about Neighborhood Services
What does Neighborhood Services do?
Neighborhood Services helps Prince William citizens to keep safe, clean and healthy communities through education, community support, and property code enforcement. We offer programs that teach residents and business owners how to properly maintain their properties, and we work with neighborhood leaders to enforce property codes that go to the heart of the County's quality of life. We also stimulate volunteer efforts across the County that empower citizens to clean trash and litter from common areas, waterways and the County's major roadways, to remove graffiti and other community maintenance issues in and around neighborhoods, and to address other challenges by working together. Our enforcement team is empowered to make property inspections related to the County property code and if necessary to issue citations that carry the force of law.
What happens when I contact Neighborhood Services?
