Advisory committees get new limits
The city is looking for volunteers to sit on the four neighborhood councils, which act in an advisory capacity to the city council.
Neighborhood council representatives advise the council and planning committee on residents’ concerns or development projects, give residents the opportunity to voice their concerns or ask questions about their neighborhood, and help bring to light. contact developers and community members during the development process.
“Neighborhood councils are a great way to get involved and learn more about your community,” city officials said in a July 15 statement.
Those wishing to serve on a board must be 18 years of age or older and live in the Simi Valley. Successful candidates will be nominated to serve on the council representing their district.
On June 29, officials voted to restructure neighborhood council districts to align with city council districts, a decision that will take effect on November 1, officials said.
The deadline to submit an application is August 2, with conditions starting November 1.
