How it works

Step 1: Apply  
City residents who want to borrow tools or the entire tool shed must provide proof of residency (ID and utility bill) and fill out an application before using the tool shed.  Applications will be approved on a case-by-case basis. Priority for lending will be given to residents with active code cases.  

Step 2: Receive  
You can borrow one tool or the whole neighborhood tool shed. Rentals can vary from 1-3 days depending on your needs. Please make sure that your vehicle has enough space to transport the tool that you request or public services can transport based on availability.  If you are borrowing the entire tool shed, public services will transport it to and from your neighborhood.  

Step 3: Share   
After you are done beautifying your yard or neighborhood, share a photo with us on social media! 

Step 4: Return  
When you are done with the tools, make sure they get back to public services at the agreed upon time or arrange for them to be picked up if needed.  

Step 5: Repeat  
Public services will have the tools ready for your next project!

Qualifications for this program will be determined on a case by case basis and a Neighborhood Tool Shed Application must be filled out. Priority for lending will be given to residents with active code cases.
