In Jerusalem, there are 31 community administrations deployed in the city's neighborhoods and providing a solution for all the city's residents.
What is Community Administration?
A community administration is a quasi-urban municipal corporation, which serves as a complementary municipal tool for the management of the city and for jointly tackling its challenges.
Community administration has three main roles:
- Provide neighborhood-local services to residents in the areas of leisure, culture, urban planning and more, in accordance with municipal policy.
- Be the connecting factor between the municipality and the residents of the neighborhood.
- Develop community life in the neighborhood: a platform for community organizing, creating opportunities for community gatherings and initiatives, and nurturing leading and influential local leadership.
Community administration is run by a public administration that represents the local community and the group of residents elected to serve on the board of directors. Residents are elected in democratic, general or closed elections. Management has the legal authority to determine the policies and work plans of the community administration.
