Evanston Community Council

Membership is open to all residents, businesses and property owners of Evanston. We welcome participation by all members of the community.
Only members who are residents of Evanston may vote in the annual election and on issues the membership chooses to limit to residents. Non-resident members can present and discuss issues, participate on committees, make motions for a vote and vote whenever residency is not called.
All residents are eligible to vote for projects funded by the city’s Neighborhood Support Program. The Council is made up of long-term residents from the Evanston community. Elections are held on the third (3rd) Thursday of September, bi-annually. Officers serve two-year terms.
Anyone who lives, works, worships or owns property may become a member of the council.
There are many benefits to becoming a member of the council, including:
  1. Voting in General Body Meetings
  2. Becoming an Elected Executive Board Member
  3. Becoming an appointed Committee Chair
  4. Volunteering on a committee of your choosing
