Welcome to My home... My neighborhood... My Marshalltown!

Posted on January 17, 2018 at 8:57 AM by Joyce Brown

We would like to invite you to join us in 2018 in an initiative to improve and take pride in your home, your neighborhood and your community.

Vision Marshalltown, a community organization, identified housing and community pride as community priorities. One of the housing objectives includes revitalizing two neighborhoods in 2018. The City of Marshalltown, with funding from the Martha-Ellen Tye Foundation, has started a new Neighborhood Revitalization Program to address the Vision Marshalltown priority.

The program will include outreach and education efforts to provide residents with resources and information on how to create a safe and healthy home and neighborhood. We will select two neighborhoods where additional focused revitalization efforts will take place.

Meet the Staff
Joyce Brown will be leading the initiative in 2018. Joyce has been working with the City as the Lead Hazard Control Grant Program Manager and will be bringing her expertise and excitement to this new program.
Michelle Spohnheimer, the Housing & Community Development Director, will also be assisting with program outreach and building community connections.
Esmeralda Armas is our Administrative Assistant for the department and she will be available to help translate materials and connect with families.
