The City of Austin’s Neighborhood Partnering Program (NPP), winner of a 2015 American Planning Association Leadership in Sustainability Award, has quickly developed into Public Works’ most innovative and popular program. Likened to the local government version of Kickstarter, NPP provides a platform for neighborhood and community organizations to request and advance small- to medium-sized improvement projects in the City’s right of way or on City-owned property. See a variety of NPP projects such as sidewalks, separated bicycle facilities, trails, community gardens, pocket parks, park improvements, mosaics and street art.
