About Us

Community Council is a nonpartisan, nongovernmental, diverse and inclusive organization committed to open dialogue, solid research, consensus-building and effective advocacy, enabling the highest quality of life for everyone throughout the region.

The process is structured to ensure a safe setting for any and every resident to participate in any or all of the following:

  • Determining which community issues to take on.
  • Expressing personal conviction on selected issues.
  • Listening to all input from other residents.
  • Seeking accurate information about the issues through solid research.
  • Gathering input from experts in the field.
