Neighborhood & Info Center


Neighborhoods' Link to City Hall

As part of the Community Relations Department the City’s Neighborhood and Information Center (NIC) provides a link between City government and Southfield residents. The NIC is located in the lobby of City Hall and is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. For visitors, home seekers and homeowners, the NIC is a valuable source of information about the City and Community. The Center provides relocation information, welcome packets, school information as well as information about City of Southfield services and programs.
