What We Do

The purpose of the East Richmond Neighborhood Council is to provide a forum for neighborhood residents to exchange ideas on community issues and neighborhood problems and to serve as a source of information on topics of interest before our city government and public agencies.

  • Our monthly meetings provide  forums in which neighbors can state their concerns to elected officials, agency staff,  and public safety officers.
  • This website posts the agendas and minutes of our meetings. It also offers timely information on events and other news of interest to residents— from announcements of neighborhood clean-ups to advice on forming neighborhood watch groups
  • Business owners who want to locate to East Richmond come before the neighborhood council to outline their plans and answer questions from our residents. The council can then make a recommendation to the Planning Department to permit, permit with conditions, or deny the development.
  • Similarly, if a homeowner’s remodeling plans may have impacts on neighbors, the Planning Department may ask the homeowner to present the plan to the neighborhood council, which then makes its recommendation.
  • Officers of the Neighborhood Council attend monthly meetings of the Richmond Neighborhood Coordinating Council, a citywide organization of neighborhood councils.

There are no membership fees. All residents are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings and join those working to improve the place where we live.
