How Our City Works

How Our City Works

 

The City of North Vancouver is run by City Council, a group of seven elected officials who were voted into office, which happens every four years. They meet every Monday at City Hall to discuss our City
and make important decisions about our community.


 

 

City Council And City Hall Are In Charge Of:


FIXING OUR STREETS AND SIDEWALKS

Our Engineering department takes care of our water, sewage, streets, trails and sidewalks.

GARBAGE, RECYCLING AND GREEN CAN

Our big trucks empty your bins and take trash and recycling away.

MAINTAINING OUR PARKS

Who cuts the grass and makes sure our playgrounds, fields and trails are looking nice? That’s our Engineering team.

OUR LIBRARY

Not only does it have books, it runs programs, events and activities throughout the year for everyone to enjoy.

PLANNING OUR CITY

Our Community Development department makes sure everything is built properly and safely. They also design our community so we have neighbourhoods to enjoy.

KEEPING US SAFE

The City has a Fire Department and the North Vancouver RCMP. They’re ready to help if you need them.

Public Art

There’s beautiful public art all over the City. The North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission gets artists to create these art pieces for us to enjoy.

RECREATION CENTRES

Been to the pool, skating rink or a soccer or dance class at Harry Jerome or John Braithwaite Community Centre? They are our recreation centres for you to enjoy.

BEING GREEN

Our Living City team makes sure we protect our environment by recycling and using energy wisely.

BUDGET

Our Finance department is in charge of paying for all the services we bring you.

FOLLOWING THE RULES

Our Bylaw Officers make sure that people park properly and are good neighbours.

EMERGENCY PLANS

NSEM are the people who help when there’s a big storm, huge snowfall or earthquake and they also teach emergency preparedness.

PROGRAMS AND FUN FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

All City departments are involved in a program called CNV4ME – making sure the City is a family-friendly place to live.

BEING A FUN COMMUNITY

The City hosts many events including Fun City Festival, Summer Sessions and the Christmas Festival. We’ve also got lots of plans to make the City even more fun, especially at the Waterfront.
