Neighborhood Improvement Committee


In 2013 the City of Holland took the proactive step of combining the Community Development Committee, the Ourstreet Committee, and the Neighborhood Advisory Committee into one new committee, called the Neighborhood Improvement Committee.

The Neighborhood Improvement Committee is an advisory committee to the Holland City Council working for the improvement of Holland’s neighborhoods and housing supply. This Committee focuses on City‐wide and targeted neighborhood programs and policies utilizing the Neighborhood Improvement Strategy, the City’s Master Plan, and other Council‐approved policies as guiding documents. This committee combines the previous work of the Community Development Committee, the Neighborhood Advisory Committee, and the Ourstreet Committee, into the responsibilities of this new Committee.
