The Richmond Heights Neighborhood Council was formed about 30 years ago for one purpose: to maintain and enhance the quality of life for residents of our area. It does this in multiple ways:
- Monthly meetings provide a forum in which residents can state their concerns to elected officials or public safety officers, who are invited to make presentations to residents.
- This website posts the agenda of the monthly RHNC meetings. It also offers timely information on events and other news of interest to residents— from announcements of yearly neighborhood clean-ups and National Night Out parties, to advice on forming neighborhood watch groups.
- Officers of the Neighborhood Council represent our interests at monthly meetings of the Richmond Neighborhood Coordinating Council , a citywide organization of neighborhood councils. Thanks to its status as an umbrella organization, the RNCC enjoys a strong voice in matters of city policy and city council elections.
- Business owners who wish to locate in Richmond Heights come before the neighborhood council to outline their plans and answer questions from our residents. The council can then make a recommendation to the Planning Department to permit, permit with conditions, or deny the development.
- In similar fashion, if a homeowner’s remodeling plans may adversely affect neighbors, the Planning Department may ask the homeowner to present the plan to the neighborhood council, which then makes its recommendation.
There are no membership fees. All residents are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings and join those working to improve the place where we live.
