What's a Neighborhood Council?
A neighborhood council is an organized group of stakeholders in the community (residents - both renters and owners, businesspeople, employees, students and other individuals with direct ties to the area) that serves as an advisory to the city. As representatives of the community, the neighborhood council allows both the community and city to be informed of its issues and needs, and ultimately creates a better sense of community and improves the quality of life in the area. Neighborhood councils also can receive up to $50,000 a year from the City of Los Angeles for community improvements, projects and expenses. The City of Los Angeles has a system of over 80 certified neighborhood councils.
The EHNC defines a "stakeholder" in its community as a person who:
- Owns Property...
- Attends School...
- Is a Member of a Faith Organization...
- Represents a community-based non-profit organization that provides services...
...in East Hollywood.
