Mayor William J. Healy II issued an executive order establishing the Mayor’s Neighborhood Commission. The new commission will consist of 17 members: the Canton Service Director, Canton Community Development Director, Chief Building Official of Canton, Canton Law Director, Canton Police Chief, two members of Canton City Council, and ten public members comprised of a real estate representative, an education representative, a community service representative, a religious community representative, a Stark Community Foundation representative and five neighborhood association representatives recommended to the Mayor by the Neighborhood Leadership Council.

The purpose of the commission is to enhance community confidence, improve citizen communication with government, promote public understanding of Canton government operations, and improve neighborhood development by enlisting the help and expertise of stakeholders from various sectors of the community.

Applications for the ten public members are available on line at www.cantonohio.gov/mayor.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to create an atmosphere for communication and collaboration between neighborhood groups and city officials,” said Mayor Healy.  “We will work cohesively towards improving the quality of life and developing ways to enhance neighborhoods in our community.”
