The City of Frederick is pleased to announce the creation of a new committee to provide suggestions for changes to the Neighborhood Advisory Council resolution.
Since 2002, the city has run the Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC) program as a forum for regular communications among residents, staff, and elected officials.
As the City prepares for a review of its current program, the City is engaged in an extensive public feedback process and is committed to communicate with residents in two-way dialogue to identify changes to the program. This ad-hoc committee will be made up 7-11 residents who will consider feedback to provide recommendations to make a more informational, engaging and equitable NAC program.
The committee will participate in discussions and activities related to advancing residential engagement. Topics of discussion may include:
- Purposes and structures of neighborhood engagement
- Methods of neighborhood engagement in other cities
- Opportunities for improving engagement
The city is currently accepting letters of interest to become a member of the Ad-Hoc Committee on Neighborhood Engagement Revitalization. Applicants should ideally demonstrate an ability to build connections and engage fellow residents.
