Make your neighborhood voice heard: neighborhood advisory council

The east central region of the neighborhood advisory council runs from the city limits on the west, the Missouri River and Front Street on the north, Prospect Avenue on the east and Gregory Boulevard on the south.

Elections are now open for the neighborhood advisory council.

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Neighborhood Advisory Council is seeking candidates for its 15-member council. The council discusses proposed City policies and programs and makes recommendations to the director of the City’s Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department.

The Neighborhood Advisory Council is divided into six regions. At full capacity, the council has two members from each region and three at-large members. Advisory Council members are expected to attend monthly meetings, meet with groups in their regions and participate in other related events, including public hearings and forums to discuss key issues and receive input on a variety of community matters.

Interested residents must apply by Monday, Aug. 19, and registered neighborhood organizations will then elect candidates to represent their areas. The following positions are open for the 2013 calendar year: one north-west region seat, one north-east region seat, one central-west region seat, one central-east region seat, one south-west region seat, one south-east region seat, and two at-large seats.
