Neighborhood Council Program
In 1992, the City Council established Tacoma’s eight Neighborhood Councils to advise them on issues of local importance and to seek consensus among residents on specific plans of action. The Neighborhood Councils also undertake a wide range of neighborhood improvements in collaboration with staff from the City of Tacoma and other agencies. (see brochure)
Each Neighborhood Council serves as an independent, non-profit citizen organization to promote citizen-based efforts for neighborhood improvement. Any resident, business owner, employee, property owner or member of an existing neighborhood group within a Neighborhood Council area is a part of the respective Neighborhood Council.
Northeast Tacoma Neighborhood Council (NETNC)
NETNC has eight designated areas covering smaller neighborhood groupings in Northeast Tacoma from the southeast corner in Northwood (by Fife Heights) to Upper Browns Point in the northwest (by Browns and Dash Points). Each area is represented by two board members and there are also three at-large board members, who also represent the businesses in the nearby Tideflats (out to the middle of the Blair Waterway). If you are active in the community, please consider becoming a board member to directly influence NETNC’s priorities.
