Community Services


Mission Statement: "Enriching the Lives of Residents"

The Community Services Department team strives to meet the ever-changing needs of residents of all ages and interests, seven days a week. We offer a variety of services, programs, and special events throughout the year for Adults, Young & Active Adults, Youth, and families. Our friendly and helpful team members are always willing to go above and beyond to serve our community. Come join us at an educational, social, cultural, or recreational event hosted by our team! 

Registration information and a complete listing of programs can be accessed through our monthly publication, the Community Spotlight.
