Neighborhood coalitions are the eyes and ears of the city. Neighborhood coalitions have the insight necessary to provide informed opinions on many local and city issues. Citizens meet monthly in their respective neighborhoods to develop solutions to local problems and enact those solutions. They form a protective network of concern throughout the city. We work closely with two urban renewal neighborhood coalitions:
Jones Street Neighborhood Coalition
Rose Hill Neighborhood
Rose Hill Design Guidelines
If your property is located in the Rose Hill Historic District (bounded by 14th Street on the south, Douglas Street on the east, 18th Street on the north and Summit Street on the west), design guidelines are available to assist you with making improvements to your property. The purpose of the guidelines is to provide information to assist in maintaining, repairing and making appropriate additions to historic and non-historic buildings located in the Rose Hill Historic District. The guidelines are intended to improve the physical appearance of the Historic District, protect and preserve the value of property, and to protect the buildings within the Historic District from inappropriate and harmful development. A copy of the Rose Hill Design Guidelines are available by clicking on this link.
Florence Crittenton Home and Maternity Hospital
In cooperation with the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the State Historic Preservation Office, the City of Sioux City has also created a brochure providing the history of the former Florence Crittenton Center Home and Maternity Hospital site. The site is located just north of the Rose Hill Urban Renewal area, at 28th and Court Street. A copy of the brochure is available by clocking on this link.
An informational sign has also been placed at the site:
The City of Sioux City has CDBG funds available to make improvements in the Rose Hill area bounded by 12th Street on the South, 18th Street on the North, Main Street on the West and Douglas Street on the East.
