The 28-member board represents seven (7) geographic areas in the downtown area; including Residents; Business Interests; Arts, Cultural, and Educational interests; Social Services Providers; Workforce, an an At-Large seat.

This year’s election will be administered for the first time by the City Clerk’s office, which encourages the Neighborhood Council to focus on generating turnout on Election Day. The Clerk’s office will be distributing a mailer to help register voters and to help candidates secure the application materials.

Two informational meetings will be hosted by the Clerk’s office to provide additional background on the campaign and election’s process. The community is invited to attend these meetings.

Identical information will be presented at each meeting. Attendance is not required in order to be a voter or candidate.

Those who consider themselves “stakeholders” in downtown are encouraged to consider a board candidacy. DLANC holds monthly board meetings, boardmembers also participate in committees that deal with a wide-range of community-specific issues.

If you aren’t interested in running for a DLANC position, the community is encouraged to register to vote in the election, and to participate in other DLANC sponsored activities – like the numeorus committees.
