Council Votes in Favor of Huizar's Change to Neighborhood Council's 'Factual Basis Stakeholders' Definition
 
After more than a year of input from Neighborhood Councils, the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners and City departments, the City Council voted 12-0 in favor of an ordinance amendment proposed by Councilmember José Huizar to remove the Neighborhood Council’s “factual basis stakeholder” seat and definition for a more robustly defined “community interest stakeholder.” 
 
Much of the amendment language was drawn directly from Neighborhood Councils via several large regional meetings held to improve Los Angeles’ Neighborhood Council system. 
 
Huizar proposed the amendment in response to the October 2012 Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council election, in which so-called “Starbucks stakeholders” with little to no community connection attempted to determine the election by using the loosely defined factual basic stakeholder clause, which states a voter only has to “declare a stake in a neighborhood and affirm the factual basis for it.” 
 
“This is significant legislation that will help our Neighborhood Councils now and in the future,” said Councilmember Huizar. “We are protecting the autonomy of our 95 neighborhood councils and promoting more robust participation through ‘community interest’ voters and office seekers.”
 
Ordinance change highlights:
  • Eliminates Factual Basic Stakeholder and its vague definition. Creates and defines “community interest stakeholder” as a voter or candidate with a substantial and ongoing relationship to communities such as, but not limited to, members of educational, nonprofit, and/or religious groups.
  • Allows Neighborhood Councils to determine number of seats for community interest stakeholders. Neighborhood Councils may choose to not have a community interest stakeholder seat as long as there is one “at large” seat available and open to all stakeholders.
  • Requires that the affirmation of those community interest stakeholders proposed in the Neighborhood Council by-laws be consistent with and equal to those administered for those who live, work or own property.
