Beginning December 1, 2016, Oahu residents can file to run for one of the 437 seats to serve on the 33 neighborhood boards around the island. Neighborhood board representatives serve as an advisory board to monitor various community projects and government actions taking place in each neighborhood. Members collectively work with elected officials, neighbors, and community organizations to develop solutions to community issues, identify priorities and objectives for community capital improvements, and advocate on issues of importance in their neighborhoods. Elected board representatives will serve a two-year term between July 2017-June 2019.
