Community Mediation

The Neighborhood Mediation program helps people voluntarily resolve neighborhood issues at the community level rather than through enforcement or the courts.

Conflicts involving noise, fences, parking, vandalism, animal complaints, pet control, property damage or maintenance, harassment, minor assaults and conflicts over money and personal property are some of the types of issues appropriate for mediation.

Some conflicts can be resolved by simply talking directly with your neighbor.

See our Steps to Resolution for information that may be helpful to you in addressing neighborhood concerns.

See also the Suggestions for Preventing Conflict with Neighbors for tips on living peacefully with your neighbor.

Simple consideration and appropriate communication with your neighbor may be all that is necessary to prevent conflicts from occurring.
