The City of Simi Valley established the Neighborhood Council program in 1970, less than one year after the City was incorporated. The program offers an opportunity for Simi Valley residents to participate in local government at the neighborhood level. Every City resident 18 years and older is a member of their respective Neighborhood Council and is encouraged to attend and actively participate in Neighborhood Council meetings.
The program is a conduit between the City and residents, with the Neighborhood Councils advising the City Council on development projects, resident concerns, and other matters on which the City Council has specifically requested their input. The Neighborhood Councils work within the City's government process to develop recommendations and innovative solutions to community concerns related to planning and development projects, public safety, traffic issues, community services, etc.
Neighborhood Councils are important because they:
Give residents the opportunity to voice their concerns or ask questions about their neighborhood and city;
Allow the City Council and City staff to gain a more thorough understanding of community concerns;
Advise the City Council and Planning Commission on development projects;
Give developers the opportunity to dialog with residents and address concerns early in the planning process, allowing them to make changes prior to an official public hearing.
The City of Simi Valley is divided into four Neighborhood Council districts.
