The Board of Neighborhood Commissioners is seeking input regarding training for the Neighborhood Council board members, including possibly creating policies for mandated leadership and conflict resolution for board members and candidates.

The Board of Neighborhood Commissioners is also seeking input regarding a possible policy regarding establishing a uniform process for the censure and removal of Neighborhood Council board members. Reasons for establishing such a policy would include openness, fairness, a proper degree of procedural due process and provide consistent guidelines to Neighborhood Councils when enforcing provisions of their bylaws and other applicable policies regarding proper conduct of board members.

If you would like to provide comments electronically, please send an email to or please join us at the next Board of Neighborhood Commissioners meeting on Monday, May 20 at 1 pm in Room 1050 of City Hall at 200 North Spring Street.
