Housing/ Nuisance Issues

JBAN works closely with the city’s Code Compliance Department and residents on complaints filed. Residents are given a housing resource list for resources for repairing non-complaint issues. If you have a complaint you may either call JBAN at 616.456.9190 or the City at 616.456.3053

Litter clean up

Our litter cleanup programs include groups of volunteers joining together to clean up a specific area. For more information please contact the JBAN offices.

Beautification project

We want to help residents beautify their property. We have donated perennials and they are free to any resident in our area. In 2010 we had 19 donors and because of them, 80 residents received plants. If you would like to be a part of this either on our committee or as a recipient please call JBAN at 616.456.9190.

Graffiti Abatement

Graffiti is a crime; it also creates a “canvas” for others to add to. Speedy removal is imperative. If you are a victim of graffiti you may either call the Graffiti Abatement hotline 616.456.3666 or the JBAN offices where our crime prevention organizer can assist you.

Neighborhood Events

National Night Out

The National Night out is always the first Tuesday in August. It was created to inform citizens about crime prevention and the importance of knowing your neighbors. For more information, visit the news article by clicking here.

Dumpster Days

Once a year JBAN hosts a cleanup day. You can bring your garbage to the specified drop off location with identification that you live in the area to dispose of. Only one major appliance per building and hazardous materials such as oil, gas, tires, paint, hot ashes, or acid will not be collected.
