Neighborhood Advisory Council

Who is the Neighborhood Advisory Council?


​Each registered neighborhood association has a representative and an alternate on the NAC. It was established in 2013 to facilitate communications between Springfield's City Council, City staff, and its 21 registered neighborhood associations.


​What do the reps do?


​They discuss issues pertinent to neighborhoods - crime, nuisance properties, health, parks, streets and sidewalks, neighbors in need, planning and development, community engagement, need for jobs and so on. As a group, they identify concerns that cut across multiple neighborhoods and seek solutions.
