The city's Neighborhood Planning staff works with individual neighborhoods to develop neighborhood action plans and to assist in implementing the plans. Gainesville is a city of beautiful in-town neighborhoods, ranging from five downtown historic districts, to mid-century heritage neighborhoods near the University of Florida, to more suburban neighborhoods with canopy trees and abundant vegetation.
The city maintains a map of the city's registered neighborhoods and their boundaries.
