About Neighborhood Councils
The Neighborhood Council Program was developed in an effort to improve communication with the community and to bring services directly to National City residents. In collaboration with other City departments and external agencies, this division of the Community Services Department commits to keeping residents informed of current events and responding courteously and expeditiously to requests for service thereby bridging the gap that is traditionally found between government and its constituents. More importantly, the Neighborhood Council Program helps to unify neighbors to further enhance the image of our city, instilling civic pride into our neighborhoods.
Regular monthly meetings are held in each of the three Neighborhood Councils. These meetings have created a path for citizen participation and a forum for civic training. Agenda topics are driven by resident requests, current events, and a desire by City officials to keep residents abreast of new programs and upcoming developments. Time is set aside in each meeting so that residents may bring up items that are of particular concern to their neighborhood. Meetings are usually attended by police and fire officials, as well as members of the City Council.
Besides attending regular meetings, Neighborhood Council participants assist the City in improving their neighborhoods by volunteering during clean-up and beautification events and by helping to reduce crime. Residents also participate in family events sponsored by the Neighborhood Council Program such as National Night Out and Movies in the Park, as well as other city sponsored events.
