What is the Community Assembly

The Community Assembly is a coalition of independent Neighborhood Councils and serves as a forum for discussion of issues of broad interest. Each Neighborhood Council selects one representative and a designated alternate to serve on the Community Assembly. Representatives are expected to represent the interests of their respective Neighborhood Council.


  1. Review and recommend an action, policy, or plan to the city council neighborhood committee, the City and any City agency, commission, or board on any matter affecting the city.
  2. Support and promote citizen participation and neighborhood enhancement.
  3. Promote and facilitate open communication between the City and neighborhood councils and provide the primary means of communication between individual neighborhood councils.
  4. Support and assist, as requested, individual neighborhood councils in becoming recognized and in performing their functions and responsibilities.
  5. Serve as an information resource to neighborhood councils.
