District 9 Councilmember Ann Zadeh has been appointed to the National League of Cities University Communities Council.
The University Communities Council is made up of local leaders from communities where a university is a dominant factor, and provides input and guidance to ensure that the needs and interests of municipal officials from university communities are included in NLC programs and service.
“Service on the University Communities Council will help to ensure that the challenges and opportunities faced by university communities are heard on the national level, from Capitol Hill to the White House,” said Clarence E. Anthony, CEO and executive director of the National League of Cities.
Issues covered by the council include economic development, transportation and infrastructure, sustainability, noise and other nuisances, housing and neighborhood concerns, and partnerships between the university and the city.
