Resident Council functions as the ‘united voice’ for each public housing development. Council membership is open to all residents of the respective development. Monthly general meetings are held in each location, with agenda items focused primarily upon housing-based issues and planning for recreational activities. Duly elected council officers chair monthly meetings, manage council finances, record meeting minutes, and represent the membership at large in agency policy and procedures. RHA Staff attend monthly general meetings, monthly executive planning meetings, committee meetings as appropriate, and provide ongoing support and assistance.
Resident council meetings are not open to the public, but are member meetings only. Only those guests invited by officers, on behalf of the membership may attend.
