How can I influence positive change in my neighborhood?
Active neighborhood citizens drive positive change in our great community. Not only is being an active member in your neighborhood beneficial to you and your family, it also helps our larger community grow and progress. Our new Neighborhood Advisory Boards are the perfect opportunity for citizens looking to become neighborhood leaders.
What is a NAB?
The City of Reno is divided into five City Council wards. Each of these wards has one representative on the Reno City Council. The City Council also includes one At-Large Councilmember and the Mayor. Each one of the City’s five Wards are represented by a respective Neighborhood Advisory Board (NAB). Each NAB will meet once a month at 5:30 p.m. on an ongoing basis. NAB meetings are your chance to learn about neighborhood happenings and discuss community issues with your neighbors. Key objectives for NAB meetings:
- Improve communication between Reno citizens, City staff, and City Council Members.
- Provide citizens the opportunity for early engagement on important community issues.
- Create a venue for citizens to review and provide feedback on certain development projects.
NAB members and interested community members participated in training sessions June 23-25, 2015. The three sessions covered topics in a variety of areas that relate to the work and operation of the NABs. Here are the training videos and materials:
- Session 1 - June 23: This session focused on the purpose and structure of Neighborhood Advisory Boards and a review of the Open Meeting Law (NRS 241.020), ethics laws/conflict of interest, and Robert’s Rules of Order/meeting procedures.
- Session 2 - June 24: This session focused on the development process, including information about the Master Plan process, development project findings and NAB input, the project review form, and the business license process.
- Session 3 - June 25: This session focused on NAB engagement and roles within the community. Information was provided about social media best practices for NAB members, media policies, and running an effective meeting.
