What Is A Community Council?


Community councils are independent, nonprofit, voluntary, self-governing associations composed of residents, property owners, business owners, nonprofits, and other entities located within geographical areas (districts) designated by the Assembly. Community councils serve an advisory function to the Assembly, the Mayor and the Administration. The purpose of community councils is to provide a direct and continuing means of participating in the government process and local affairsCommunity Councils are recognized in Anchorage’s Home Rule Charter, and the Assembly authorizes each council by ordinance. While community councils are not part of local government, they are an important part of the local government process.
