Neighborhood councils will not be charged a facility rental or staffing fee for the use of a community center for regular council meetings and functions. Neighborhood councils also receive a one (1) time use of a park for their annual event (the use of the Convention Center and Swim Centers is not applicable).
Neighborhood councils also receive printing and mailing services, subject to funding availability as well as specification requirements. Please e-mail the staff liaison to receive a copy of the Neighborhood Council Printing Guidelines and to coordinate your print job.
The City of Richmond also provides neighborhood dumpster days in partnership with neighborhood councils. Residents may drop off disposable items to dumpster locations in their neighborhood at no cost. When events are hosted in partnership with Sims Metal, neighborhood councils receive rebate donations for the metal recyclables that are brought in.
