Community Impact Statements (CIS)

Neighborhood Councils were created to advise the City on how City policy impacts local communities. Community Impact Statements, or CIS, are one of the most important ways in which a Neighborhood Council can advise City departments and officials on matters under consideration by the City’s decision makers. A CIS is an official statement or position that a Neighborhood Council adopts on a specific matter or issue.

CIS are often issued in response to time-sensitive issues. A Committee slated to present an issue at a Board meeting may consider drafting a CIS to bring with them, so it may be tailored by the Board then signed and submitted without delay.  Learn more here.
