The Board meetings focus on the business aspects of running our Neighborhood Council, such as detailed discussion of our monthly expenditures, reports on our projects and various meetings, discussion and votes on planning issues, and consideration of new City ordinances which affect our stakeholders.  Our General Membership meetings feature one or two speakers on topics of interest to our residents, businesses, and other stakeholders.

What is a Stakeholder?

Stakeholders are defined as those who live, work, or own property within the boundaries of the HGNNC and also those who declare a stake in the HGNNC Neighborhood Council and affirm the factual basis for it, such as parents of children who attend school within the HGNNC boundaries, members/attendees of faith-based institutions located within the boundaries of HGNNC, and those who regularly attend meetings of organizations located within the boundaries of HGNNC.

How Can a Stakeholder Participate?

Stakeholders may come to Board, Membership and Committee meetings and speak during the public comment period. If you have an item of concern that you would like to have discussed by the Board, please email the Board at least a week ahead of the scheduled meeting so that your item may be considered for the agenda. Please note that the Board may only take action on items on the agenda. The agenda is posted 72 hours in advance.
