Super Neighborhoods

Recognized SN List and Bylaws

Neighborhood planners assist interested stakeholders in forming a Super Neighborhood Council. Once a council successfully completes all the preliminary steps, which include gathering diverse stakeholder representation, creating an organizational structure and drafting by-laws they are recognized by the Mayor. In some cases, Super Neighborhoods (SN) collaborate to form one joint council.

BYLAWS
After agreeing on an organizational framework, stakeholders will formulate and adopt by-laws. By-laws address fundamental issues on conducting business and making decisions. By-laws should address the following issues:

  • The right of any stakeholder within the super neighborhood to be represented, either through new or existing organization
  • The manner in which council seats and subsequent voting authority is assigned. One scenario might be that each stakeholder organization holds a seat on the council.
  • The manner in which super neighborhood council meetings will be conducted.
  • The method by which residents will participate in council activities and be informed of decisions.
  • The method for assuring that all council activity is conducted in open meetings where all residents may observe discussions and participate under defined circumstances.
  • A prohibition against exclusion of any individual or organization based on race, creed, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation or national origin from participating super neighborhood council activities or serving as a council member.

NOTE:

  • This list of Super Neighborhoods (SN) is alphabetical by SN
