Neighborhood Programs and Services
The City provides a trailer containing everything a neighborhood would need to host a neighborhood block party including tables, chairs, ice chests, games and a sound system. Therefore, the trailer makes it easy to host a block party and the trailer is available for neighborhoods to borrow at no cost.
Having a house number that is easily identifiable on your property helps with a timely response to emergency calls for service, package delivery and food delivery. You can borrow the kit at no cost, and easily pick up from the Round Rock Public Library.
The City’s goal is to assist the repair and upgrade of neighborhood infrastructure. Staining and sealing your wood fence can protect the beauty and value of your home. Even if your fence is weathered, it can be restored making it look beautiful for years to come.
The City conducts directed neighborhood cleanups where one or two specific neighborhoods are involved.
The kit contains everything a neighborhood would need to host a movie night including a screen, projector, Blu-ray player, speakers and microphone.
