How can I influence positive change in my neighborhood?

Active neighborhood citizens drive positive change in our great community. Not only is being an active member in your neighborhood beneficial to you and your family, it also helps our larger community grow and progress. Our Neighborhood Advisory Boards are the perfect opportunity for citizens looking to become neighborhood leaders.

What is a NAB?

The City of Reno is divided into five City Council wards. Each of these wards has one representative on the Reno City Council. The City Council also includes one At-Large Councilmember and the Mayor. Each of the City’s five wards are represented by a respective Neighborhood Advisory Board (NAB). NAB meetings are your chance to learn about neighborhood happenings and discuss community issues with your neighbors. Key objectives for NAB meetings:

  1. Improve communication between Reno citizens, City staff, and City Council Members.
  2. Provide citizens the opportunity for early engagement on important community issues.
  3. Create a venue for citizens to review and provide feedback on certain development projects.

View the 2019 NAB Calendar and visit the City of Reno calendar to see if your NAB is meeting this month. Visit individual NAB pages for agendas and additional details: Ward 1, Ward 2, Ward 3, Ward 4 and Ward 5. If you're interested in a joining a NAB, apply online today.
