WHAT IS A
The City of Los Angeles charter was amended in 1999 to form 99 Neighborhood Councils (NC). The purpose of the NC's is to give community members the chance to have input on decisions that affect their quality of life and the services received by City departments. While each neighborhood creates their own unique NC they all elect board members who manage an annual budget of $32,000 in public funds.
