Opportunity to Work on City-Wide Issues with Other Neighborhoods
The Neighborhood Leadership Alliance (NLA) is recruiting for a representative for the Southern Crossing Neighborhood Association. Along with representatives from the 12 other neighborhood associations, you will meet monthly to discuss areas of common interest and concern. Parking requirements, short term rentals, affordable housing, land use education, and homeless encampments are some of the issues studied in the past. The NLA provides a direct and continuing means for neighborhood association participation and input to the City Council from a neighborhood and community perspective. (See the NLA webpage for more information).
Those interested in applying for the committee should fill out the online City advisory committee application form. The Southern Crossing board will follow up with applicants and provide an appointment recommendation to the Mayor and City Council. The NLA representative also becomes a member of the Southern Crossing board.
