City Neighborhood Council

The City Neighborhood Council (CNC) is a citizen-led advisory group, comprised of elected members from each of the City’s 13 Districts, organized under the authority of Seattle City Council Resolution 27709 (Establishment of Neighborhood Planning and Assistance Program) in October, 1987. Subsequent resolutions have refined or altered this initial resolution. They are Resolution 28115 (Amendment to Promote Diversity) December, 1989; Resolution 28948 (Neighborhood District Representation on the City Neighborhood Council) in July, 1994; and Resolution 29015 (City/Community Partnership) October, 1994.*

The CNC's purpose is to provide city-wide coordination for the Neighborhood Matching Fund, Neighborhood Budget Prioritization, and Neighborhood Planning programs.

The CNC also provides a forum for a discussion of common neighborhood issues and is available for advice on policies necessary for the effective and equitable implementation of the Neighborhood Planning and Assistance Program. Its monthly meetings are open to the public.

*Copies of these resolutions are available in hard copy at the Department of Neighborhoods by contacting Wendy Watson at wendy.watson@seattle.gov or 206-684-0719.
