WHAT IS THE NC SYSTEM?
About the Los Angeles Congress of Neighborhoods

Held yearly at LA City Hall, the event aims to help Neighborhood Council leaders obtain the tools and establish the relationships they need to build a successful future for their communities.
About the Los Angeles Neighborhood Council system
LA’s Neighborhood Councils are grassroots-level advisory bodies that exist to connect Angelenos to City Hall. The system was established in 1999 by the City Charter, in order to improve government responsiveness to local concerns. Currently, there are approximately 1800 elected Board Members serving on 96 Neighborhood Councils that each represents an average of 40,000 people.
