Purpose and Mission

The East César Chávez Neighborhood Planning Team was formed in 1999. The purpose of the East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood Leadership Team (ECC NPT) is to facilitate the completion of the 1999 East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood Plan adopted by the City of Austin on May 13, 1999.

The ECC NPT shall seek the opinions of their neighbors and make every effort to represent the neighborhood through the open discussion of issues and the dissemination of information to the neighborhood. The ECC NPT will be a broad-based diverse group. Every effort should be made by the ECC NPT to listen to voices of the neighborhood. Decision-making will be determined through majority rule, but every effort should be made to use consensus building in order build trust in the neighborhood.
