Maintain Funding for Community Councils and Invest in Neighborhoods in the FY2021 Budget
The Community Councils have, as always, quietly remained committed to execution of the work on the ground in their neighborhoods and have, notably in this time of greatest stress, stepped up that work.
Redressing inequity and creating equitable opportunity, access, and justice might be led by the policy makers, but they are put into practice in the neighborhoods, in the communities, and on the ground with the individuals who form our city.
We, the undersigned individuals, request City Council:
Maintain funding from the Recommended Budget for FY2021 for Community Councils (NSP) and Invest in Neighborhoods in recognition of the important role Community Councils play in our civic infrastructure and as part of the community safety nets.
