WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU!! The mission of your Neighborhood Board 25 is to be a conduit between the citizens of our community and our elected officials. We monitor legislation, testify for or against legislation, monitor development in our area, are a forum for complaints, ideas and announcements. We are the one place where, on a monthly basis, our community has access to its government.

 

SUNSHINE IN GOVERNMENT. The neighborhood board system was established in 1972 as a result of the sixties' push for more sunshine, more transparency, in government. Today, there are 32 active neighborhood boards across the island of Oahu. A nine-member neighborhood commission assists in the formation, planning, operation, and evaluation of neighborhood boards. The neighborhood commission and neighborhood boards receive administrative support and technical assistance from the neighborhood commission office, which maintains a staff of 16 full-time employees led by a mayor-appointed executive secretary. Together, the neighborhood commission, neighborhood boards, and neighborhood commission office comprise the neighborhood board system, which seeks to meet the charter-mandated mission, "to increase and assure effective citizen participation in the decisions of government."

 

YOUR VOICE WILL BE HEARD. To that end we receive reports from legislators, state, county and city agencies and officials. We receive regular updates from the military organizations in our community. We hear from citizens as groups or individuals. Though we are not a law making body, we do pass resolutions that are transmitted to our lawmakers and law givers. In short your Neighborhood Board is a meeting place where information gets passed from you to those who need to hear you. To be placed on the agenda of the next meeting call: Dick Poirier at 623-2259 or email: rpoirier3@msn.com. Participate in the process. Your community will be better for it.
