What are neighborhood councils?
Neighborhood Councils are your connection to Los Angeles City Hall and the elected officials and City departments there. Neighborhood Councils are made up of elected board members who are part of the local community, including people who live, work, own property, attend church or school, participate in a non-profit organization, or have some other connection to a neighborhood. The City of Los Angeles created Neighborhood Councils in 1999, in order to make the City government more responsive to local needs.
The purpose of the HCNNC is to participate as a body on issues concerning our neighborhood and regarding the governance of the City of Los Angeles in a transparent, inclusive, collaborative, accountable and viable manner.

1. To increase public participation in governmental decision-making and problem solving processes; and
