The Neighborhood Livability Partnership (NLP) was organized in late 2017 in order to combine the efforts of multiple City departments and community partners to find creative, long-term solutions for chronic nuisance properties and blight houses on a fact-specific, case-by-case basis.
The NLP holds monthly meetings for collaboration and information-sharing; attendees include but are not limited to representatives from:
City of Medford Police (both Code Enforcement and Patrol), Legal, Building Safety and Planning Departments
Addictions Recovery Center
Jackson County Mental Health
Jackson County District Attorney’s Office, and Parole and Probation
As a point of clarification, the Neighborhood Livability Partnership is a separate program from the Livability Team, which was created in September 2019 after the Medford City Council and Budget Committee approved funding.
