Community Services coordinates 16 facilities and numerous programs through five divisions, administers Community Grants, and coordinates special events and projects. The sustainability function formerly contained within the Community Services administration budget has been moved to Infrastructure and Planning Services for better alignment of resources.


The Community Grants program provides funding to non-profit, community-based organizations that deliver direct programs, services, or activities that improve the quality of life for residents. The grants support activities in the areas of social services and health, arts, culture, heritage, recreation, and the environment. These activities can range from small special events to operations for larger organizations.
