Communities across the city are coming together to demand change, protection and accountability from leaders. There’s no better place to channel that energy than your local super neighborhood. Not only is it one of the only civic organizations that is actually a part of the City’s charter (meaning it’s a viable tool for accountability), it also is a meeting of civic-minded individuals working collectively to make change on an immediate level.
A super neighborhood is a geographically designated area where residents, civic organizations, institutions and businesses work together to identify, plan, and set priorities to address the needs and concerns of their community.
The boundaries of each super neighborhood rely on major physical features (bayous, freeways, etc.) to group together contiguous communities that share common physical characteristics, identity or infrastructure.
The super neighborhood elects a council comprised of area residents and stakeholders that serves as a forum to discuss issues and identify and implement priority projects for the area.
