This month, the City Council voted to support a plan to simplify the process to allow for new neighborhood councils in smaller communities that are part of existing NCs.

The new ordinance allows for up to five new sub-division neighborhood council additions every two years while incorporating safeguards to protect the integrity and long-standing goals of our neighborhood councils.
