The mission of the Urban Management Division is to create safe, inviting and aesthetically pleasing environments in parks, common areas, right-of-ways, cemeteries, athletic facilities and other green spaces within the city limits of the City of Prattville in order to promote economic development and enhance the quality of life of our citizens.
This department was formed on April 5, 2011 to consolidate like personnel from several departments who perform like functions in an effort to streamline the process of managing city properties. Urban Management will accentuate the City of Prattville with Spring and Summer plantings, grass cutting, litter collection, ditch maintenance, "passive" parks (those not containing ball fields), medians, and right-of-way maintenance in an effort to keep our community attractive. In the Fall and Winter months, employees will work to raise the aesthetics in passive parks, provide seasonal decorating services, and work in the greenhouse to produce plant material for the upcoming season.
In 2014, Urban Management was placed, as a division, under the Public Works Department.
