Nominations open for neighborhood advisory council

central-west-regionMidtown neighborhoods have an opportunity to help fill positions on the Neighborhood Advisory Council.

The 15-member 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, Nov. 24, and registered neighborhood organizations will then elect candidates to represent their areas.

In Midtown, one seat in the Central West Region (bounded by the city limits on the west, by the Missouri River and Front Street on the north, by Prospect Avenue on the east and by Gregory Boulevard on the south) is open.

Applications are available online or at the Robert J. Mohart Center, 3200 Wayne Ave.
