Neighborhood Council Speaker Request Form Instructions
The City of Los Angeles Ordinance No. 184243 stipulates an opportunity for an approved Neighborhood Council representative to provide comments regarding the Neighborhood Council’s formal position on any matter itemized on the agenda for any Los Angeles Board of Commissioners meeting. As such, the Los Angeles Harbor Department developed a process for the Neighborhood Councils to file a formal position at a Board of Harbor Commission Meeting prior to submitting the documents to the City Clerk for official processing. In order to comply with Los Angeles Department of Neighborhood Empowerment procedure to file a Resolution, Motion or Community Impact Statement, please file with the City of Los Angeles City Clerk’s Office at https://cityclerk.lacity.org/cis/.

A Designee is an official Neighborhood Council member approved to file a Neighborhood Council Speaker Request Form by a quorum and vote of the Neighborhood Council. A Neighborhood Council’s formal position must be submitted in the form of a Resolution or Motion. A submitted Resolution or Motion is voted on and approved by a quorum of the Neighborhood Council.
