 About the Shandon Neighborhood Council

The Shandon Neighborhood Council is comprised of 15 people whose primary residence is in Shandon. The neighborhood council serves the neighborhood by working together with neighbors, community leaders, and government officials to address important issues affecting the neighborhood. The neighborhood council also sponsors and organizes annual events including the Easter Egg Hunt, National Night Out, the Turkey Trot, and the Homes for the Holidays Tour.

Residents of Shandon do not pay dues to the neighborhood council and are not considered members of the council. They do, however, have the ability to vote on council membership and other matters affecting council governance, such as amendments to the by-laws. 

The Shandon Neighborhood Council meets every other month beginning in January. Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month and begin at 6:15 p.m. A time for social gathering & meet and greet from 6:00-6:15 usually precedes the business session. The location of the meetings rotates between the two neighborhood parks. The annual meeting is in March and is typically held at Heyward Street United Methodist Church (formerly known as Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church) in Shandon. 

Everyone is invited to attend the meetings. Elected officials and city police officers often attend the meetings and report on what is happening in the city and in the neighborhood.
