Consisting of neighborhood leaders from around the city, the Neighborhood Advisory Council serves in an advisory and partnership capacity to:

1) Give advice and feedback on the programs and policies of the Office of Neighborhood Empowerment,
2) Bring neighborhood issues and concerns to the attention of the Mayor and City Administration,
3) Propose to the Administration responses and solutions to address these concerns; and
4) Serve as a sounding board for city initiatives and proposals affecting neighborhoods. 

The NAC advises and provides input only to the Mayor and the City Administration. As a matter of policy, it does not advise Knoxville City Council, Knoxville-Knox County Planning, and other elected and appointed bodies.

The City's Office of Neighborhood Empowerment provides staff support to the NAC.


APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS

Members are appointed by the Mayor of Knoxville. There are two designated seats for each City Council District as well as three at-large positions.
