The Atwater Neighborhood Resource Center provides a wide array of services. In addition to City services, it is an excellent source of information. You can find out what is occurring in your City Council District and/or neighborhood and learn how you can get involved.

The Atwater staff is available to help you navigate City services; whether it is a housing issue, potholes in the street, or animal issues - we are here to help serve you and answer your questions.

The Neighborhood Resource Center can also help you access your City Council Member and make sure that your representative is aware of your concerns.
