Neighborhood Council Program

Neighborhood Council Program Overview

The Neighborhood Council Program engages neighbors on issues and concerns that directly affect them, help craft solutions to mutual problems, and build a sense of pride and personal responsibility for their neighborhoods. The program is committed to racial equity in all operations and at this time is focused on increasing board representation of underrepresented communities. You can view Tacoma Municipal Code 1.45 and the Standards and Guidelines document for the Neighborhood Council Program to learn more about the program. 

Each Neighborhood Council serves as an independent, non-profit organization to promote community-based efforts for neighborhood improvement.

Any resident, business owner, employee, property owner or member of an existing neighborhood group within a Neighborhood Council area can join a Neighborhood Council.
