Newark People's Assembly


Bridging the gap between the Community and City Hall.  Decision-making based on the wants and needs of the community.  

The "community" has a voice and the Mayor wants it to be heard.  This will enable Newark's decision makers to consider the opinion of the stakeholders when considering and/or deciding programs, projects, initiatives, and development that may impact their lives.


"The Community"- stakeholders- individuals or groups who live, work, play, study, visit, or invest in the City of Newark.


  1. Consortium of Community Based Organizations that are empowered by the City to further engage residents ( ie. block/neighborhood associations, community and faith based organizations, non-profits, small business, etc.).
  2. Get residents involved. Encouraging individuals to participate in organizations
  3. Communicate efficiently, effectively, and regularly w/ the community about the happenings in the City (to improve the quality of life).
  4. Share information from all city departments and agencies within the City of Newark (that affect the residents directly).
  5. Avoid getting complaints about "the community" being left out and/or not knowing.
  6. Organizing organizations to be effective within the community (ie. Block/Neighborhood Associations)
  7.  Move away from the ward model (North, South, Central, East, and West) and towards a neighborhood model (Clinton Hill, Lower Broadway, Vailsburg, University Heights, South Ironbound, etc.).
  8. If you have suggestions, concerns, and/or questions regarding the City of Newark and those things that may impact quality of life for Newark residents, this is the forum. We will host meetings regularly throughout the 21 neighborhoods in the City of Newark to discuss various issues. We need your assistance with solutions.
