Motion to Reform and Improve our Neighborhood Council System - David Ryu

Friend --

I just introduced a motion to reform and improve our Neighborhood Council System, and I want your feedback for City Council to consider. Please read my letter to Neighborhood Councils here.

When I became the chair of the City Council committee that oversees the Neighborhood Council system, I set out to review the current issues facing the Neighborhood Council system and hear from you. That’s why I sent out a survey to every Neighborhood Council board member in December, asking for your feedback. Thank you for your response.

This past week I introduced a comprehensive motion to consider reforms of the Neighborhood Council system based on your feedback, my meetings with the NC Alliances last year, the work of the Health, Education, and Neighborhood Councils Committee, and my office’s review of prior legislative proposals for the NC system. Now I'm asking for your input once more.

To provide feedback on the proposals, please have your Neighborhood Council submit a formal Community Impact Statement (CIS) within the next 90 days. Please send any individual feedback to the City Clerk overseeing the Health, Education and Neighborhood Councils, Eric Villanueva at
