KCNAC seeks candidates to fill board positions
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Neighborhood Advisory Council (KCNAC) is seeking candidates to fill several board member positions for the 2010-2011 term. The KCNAC is a six-region advisory board to the governing bodies of the City, with an emphasis on the director of the Neighborhood and Community Services Department. The board aims to represent Kansas City’s diverse neighborhoods’ interest in the development and implementation of government policies affecting them.
"With 240 neighborhoods spread across 318 square miles, Kansas City has dense, urban neighborhoods, sprawling suburban neighborhoods and even neighborhoods with small farms. The Neighborhood Advisory Council is an important link between those neighborhoods and City Hall,” said Mayor Mark Funkhouser. “I’d like to urge everyone to consider running for a seat on this important Council.”
Kansas City residents interested in running for one of the available seats need to complete an application by Dec. 10 and send it to:
