Request for Action (RFA)

A Request for Action is a letter submitted by the neighborhood council to an elected representative or a governmental agency to advocate for action or a position on a certain issue. If there is an issue which concerns you, you may ask the neighborhood council to send a RFA to the appropriate elected individual or agency in order to address the issue. A RFA letter provides the full authority of the neighborhood council to your request and may be more effective than an individual inquiry in effecting corrective actions.

A RFA may be requested from the Executive Committee through public comment or email. The request will be subsequently considered by the neighborhood council. Requests should include as much pertinent contextual information as possible.
