The City of South Lake Tahoe’s Neighborhood Service Team program serves to improve and preserve neighborhood vitality by fostering public participation and facilitating interaction between residents and your City government.
Addressing the needs to improve neighborhood vitality!
When you start an NST, the people in your neighborhood get a chance to decide what needs to be done and work together to make it happen. One of the best ways to attract attention and form group unity is to focus on an important issue in your neighborhood. It’s important that you determine the needs of your neighborhood and focus on those needs until you demonstrate success.
The following is a list of possible short- and long-term projects:
- Neighborhood Clean-up
- Community Garden, tree planting, flower planting
- Back-to-school party and school supply drive

Neighborhood "Captains" Needed
These meetings are informal and we are looking for volunteer "captains" to be the main point of contact for their neighborhood area. A neighborhood "captain" would act as the liaison for their immediate neighbors.
