Neighborhood Councils Action Coalition

The purpose of Invest in Neighborhood’s Neighborhood Councils Action Coalition is to promote community building and collective work across the neighborhoods.  


  • share ideas and experiences,
  • highlight issues which collaborative and collective work can tackle, 
  • engage with the legislative and administrative processes of the City which impact our neighborhoods
  • provide education and information to help Community Councils to be more effective

We meet on the third Saturday every month, 9 am, via Zoom. This is open to Community Council Board members and Committee Chairs. If you are interested, please sign up here:
