A Way to Get Involved in Your Community
Eligible residents and businesses can participate and vote in the upcoming North Park Planning Committee (NPPC) election in March.
To be eligible to vote in the March 19, 2019 NPPC election, you must live, work, own property, or own a business1 in North Park2, have a valid Membership Registration Form on file, have signed in at one NPPC meeting3 prior to the elections and present valid identification4. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. at North Park Christian Fellowship, 2901 North Park Way, across from the parking garage. Although it may be beneficial to become familiar with the topics discussed during the meeting, it is not required to stay for the entire meeting once you sign in.
The NPPC provides advisory recommendations to the City’s Planning Commission and City Council regarding projects in the community, and is recognized by the City as an important part of the approval process including but not limited to new development, public facilities, and transportation. The more participants, the more influence we have on the future of North Park: how it will look and what it will include.
The NPPC offers many ways for you to get involved!
– Attend the monthly General Meetings.
– Learn how City government operates and how its decisions affect North Park.
– Hear City representatives, staff from elected officials, prospective developers and community members present their vision of the future of North Park.
– Ask questions and voice your own opinion about matters before the NPPC.
