Neighborhood Council Program

Tacoma's Neighborhood Councils

In 1992, the City Council established Tacoma's eight Neighborhood Councils to advise them on issues of local importance and to seek consensus among residents on specific plans of action. The Neighborhood Councils also undertake a wide range of neighborhood improvements in collaboration with staff from the City of Tacoma and other agencies.  View a copy of the Tacoma Municipal Code related to the Neighborhood Council Program.

Each Neighborhood Council serves as an independent, non-profit citizen organization to promote citizen-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. Tacoma’s eight Neighborhood Council boundaries – in Northeast Tacoma, New Tacoma, the North End, the West End, Central Tacoma, South Tacoma, the Eastside and the South End.  View a copy of the Standards and Guidelines document for the Neighborhood Council Program.

 

Neighborhood Council Program Review

The Neighborhood Council Program has a stated goal to engage its neighborhoods 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. As a result, the City supports and promotes the Neighborhood Council Program to create an environment in which residents are afforded an opportunity to participate in City government decisions in an advisory role.

 

Innovative Grant Program

Through the City of Tacoma's Neighborhood Innovative Grant Program, community groups within Tacoma's eight Neighborhood Council district can apply for grant funding supporting neighborhood improvement activities or projects. Most grants requested and approved are in the range of $500 to $8,000.
