Dear Neighbor

I moved to North Liberty with my wife, Valerie, on Halloween Day two decades ago. While we chose North Liberty because of the location, we’ve grown to love this city for everything it is. We eventually built a home here, started our family here and have grown with North Liberty.

And while it’s still growing — the University of Iowa’s decade-old “coming soon” sign will soon be a state-of-the art hospital, for example — North Liberty has remained a small town at its heart, and the best parts of the community my family fell in love with.

North Liberty is the kind of place you can talk to city leaders in the grocery store, run into friends at the park, or wave to neighbors out walking their dogs. We’re a town of great neighborhoods full of great neighbors.

Welcome to our neighborhood.

― Mayor Chris Hoffman

Estimado Vecino

Me mudé a North Liberty con mi esposa Valerie, el día de Halloween de hace dos décadas. Aunque elegimos North Liberty por su ubicación, hemos llegado a amar esta ciudad por todo lo que ofrece. Con el tiempo construimos una casa aquí, comenzamos nuestra familia en este lugar y hemos crecido con North Liberty.

Y aunque esta ciudad continúa creciendo — por ejemplo, el cartel de “próximamente” de la Universidad de Iowa, que tiene una década de antigüedad, pronto se convertirá en un hospital de última generación —, North Liberty sigue siendo una pequeña ciudad en su esencia y las mejores partes de la comunidad enamoraron a mi familia.

North Liberty es el tipo de lugar donde puedes hablar con los dirigentes municipales en la tienda de comestibles, encontrarte con amigos en el parque o saludar a las personas que pasean a sus perros. Somos una localidad de grandes vecindarios llenos de grandes vecinos.

Bienvenido a nuestro vecindario.

Alcalde Chris Hoffman

Cher Voisin

Il y a vingt ans, le jour d’Halloween, j’ai emménagé à North Liberty avec ma femme, Valerie. Nous avons choisi North Liberty en raison de son emplacement, mais nous avons appris à aimer cette ville pour tout ce qu’elle est. Nous avons fini par y construire une maison, y avons fondé notre famille et avons grandi avec North Liberty.

Et même si elle continue à se développer – le panneau « prochainement » de l’université de l’Iowa, vieux de dix ans, laissera bientôt place à un hôpital ultramoderne, par exemple – North Liberty est restée une petite ville dans son cœur, et les meilleurs éléments de la communauté dont ma famille est tombée amoureuse.

North Liberty est le genre d’endroit où l’on peut discuter avec les responsables de la ville à l’épicerie, rencontrer des amis au parc ou saluer les voisins qui promènent leur chien. Nous sommes une ville avec de superbes quartiers et d’excellents voisins.

Bienvenue dans notre quartier.

Maire Chris Hoffman

亲爱的邻居

二十年前的万圣节那天,我和妻子瓦莱丽搬到了北利伯蒂。虽然当初选择北利伯蒂是因为其地理位置,但随着时间的推移,我们深爱这个城市,爱它的一切。我们最终在这里建立了家园,开始了家庭生活,与北利伯蒂一同成长。

虽然它仍在不断发展——例如,爱荷华大学已有十年历史的“即将推出”标志很快就会成为一家最先进的医院——但北利伯蒂一直保持着小镇的本质,保留了我家庭所热爱的社区的最优部分。

北利伯蒂是那种你可以在杂货店与市政领导交谈,在公园里碰到朋友,或者向遛狗的邻居挥手致意的地方。我们是一个充满了优秀邻居的伟大社区。

欢迎来到我们的社区。

市长 Chris Hoffman

Neighborhood Ambassadors

Each neighborhood has designated residents who are passionate about advancing the quality of life for their neighbors. We call these volunteers Neighborhood Ambassadors.  They partner with the city to help close the information gap between the city and residents, build community through gatherings and projects, and connect neighbors to each other and to community resources.

Community Center

The North Liberty Community Center, located at 520 W. Cherry Street, is a highlight of the community. The building houses the Recreation Department, Library, indoor and outdoor pools and more to meet many of the recreation and leisure needs of our residents. Computers to access the internet are available at the North Liberty Library and free WiFi is available throughout the building.

City Government

North Liberty is governed by a mayor and council of five members, with a full-time city administrator to operate daily business. Terms are four years, with elections held in odd-numbed years for half of the body. You can attend any City Council (or board or commission meeting) at the council chambers, 1 Quail Creek Circle, or watch the meetings online.

City of North Liberty Considering Changes to Recycling

Trash, Recycling, Yard Waste & Compost

These services are billed through the city, but contracted through Johnson County Refuse, an LRS company. Trash, single-stream recycling, yard waste and curbside compost pickup occurs weekly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, starting at 7 a.m. Holidays typically delay collection one day on the week they fall.

Pets

Don’t forget to license your dogs and cats! Should your pet get lost, licensing helps them get home. It’s required for the dog park, too!

Keep your pets from roaming free — they can be impounded — and pick up after them, too.

Neighborhoods

Residents are required to keep grass (and, let’s face it, weeds) shorter than 6 inches.

In winter, snow should be cleared from walks within 48 hours after the end of a snow fall. On-street parking can be prohibited by declaration when we expect a storm, and we’ll post notice on our website.

We also have a network of Neighborhood Ambassadors to help get you connected.
