Welcome, to the City of Gladstone's Neighborhoods Website!
The City of Gladstone has a diverse mix of housing units, ranging from older 'postwar' housing to newer upscale and larger housing choices. Like most all first-tier American suburbs, reinvestment and revitalization of older neighborhoods not only takes monetary investment, but also requires neighbors coming together and prioritizing their neighborhoods most pressing needs. Although some neighborhoods will require more investment and work than others, each neighborhood has unique aspects that can be built upon and promoted. Older neighborhoods often have an abundance of mature trees and landscaping that provide the neighborhood with history and a sense of long-term pride. Newer neighborhoods tend to incorporate modern urban design standards such as streetlights, sidewalks, and stormwater management practices. With Gladstone representing 29 distinct neighborhoods and approximately 22 homes associations within its city boundaries, commitment and 'community building' will be essential for future success.
The Gladstone Neighborhood Website is the community's resource for staying proactive and recognizing strengths and weaknesses within our community. Many neighborhoods are building from a grassroots effort but many more will need to become involved; along with homes associations. Please take a look at what you and others are doing to make Gladstone a better and more unique place to live. In addition, sign up for our neighborhood information tips and share with those around you. Thanks for visiting our site and get involved in what Gladstone neighborhoods have to offer!

Simple DIY Home Maintenance Tips & Ideas: Drafty Windows
Drafty windows are a major culprit of high energy bills in the summer and winter months. Periodically check the condition of the caulk line that holds your windows in place. If the caulk appears to be dry, cracked, or otherwise weathered, remove the old caulk with a box cutter or other sharp knife and run a new bead of caulk along the seam.
