About Greenwood Community Council

By living or working in Greenwood, YOU are part of the council! The Greenwood Community Council (GCC) provides a forum to engage residents and businesses; opportunities to meet city and business leaders who affect Greenwood face-to-face; a venue to forge shared visions and mutual agreement on divisive issues facing the neighborhood; and promote safety, affordability and community.  We are always looking for individuals interested in serving on the GCC Board or volunteering to improve the website, organize meetings, or participate in projects, particularly related to our focus areas: land use; transportation; safety and health; and outreach and engagement.
