The Greenbriar Neighborhood Council is one of 40 neighborhood councils throughout the City of Richmond.
The Council is run by volunteer residents. Our mission is to help residents determine the needs and problems of our neighborhood and to exchange ideas and information so we can resolve them and make improvements.
In the 80's and 90's we advocated for appropriate residential development in our area and opposed proposals that would have caused too much traffic and fire hazards.
In the 2016, we helped in the successful effort to keep Olinda School open by sharing information and attending school district meetings to explain the school’s importance to our community.
Each year, we sponsor the National Night Out in August. In 2017 we sponsored a Community Clean Up day with the city of Richmond, an event we hope to continue biannually.
On the second Monday of every month, representatives from each neighborhood council meet with City of Richmond officials under the auspices of the Richmond Neighborhood Coordinating Council.
Reports are given from various city agencies such as:
Mayor's OfficeCity Manager
Engineering and the Planning Department
They inform us of their recent city activities and future plans. We are able to ask direct questions of each department. We are also able to communicate our neighborhood needs and interests. This is direct community involvement that happens on a regular basis.
Our voice is heard as loudly and clearly as any other neighborhood at these meetings.
We hold our annual general membership meeting in January each year. If you're interested in becoming involved in our council, please contact me at email@example.com.
