Monthly City Council / Presidents Meetings
In 1991 the City began the Neighborhood Association Presidents meeting monthly to promote a two-way dialogue about issues important to our neighborhoods. In a little over a decade this forum has grown from a handful of neighborhood associations to more than 55 groups.
Meetings are held at Richardson City Hall at 7:00 am on the third Tuesday of each month.
Only neighborhood associations that are formally recognized by the City are invited to attend these meetings.
