Want a glimpse of what’s happening in each of the neighborhoods? Attend a Council of Neighborhoods meeting!
The Council of Neighborhoods was created by City ordinance in 1990 and is made up of volunteer representatives from all active neighborhoods. Each neighborhood association elects or selects its representatives: two regular representatives and one alternate representative. Contact your neighborhood leader to get involved.
The Council meets monthly except for May and December. City staff and elected City leaders share updates and relevant information with the Council, and neighborhood leaders share news from their communities.
The public is welcome to attend and observe all meetings. Citizen comments can be given at the beginning of the meeting.
Advisory to the Mayor
The Council is an advisory group to the Mayor, providing an opportunity for City elected leaders to hear the concerns or ideas Everett residents have about city plans, services and policies.
