Neighborhood Association Coalition

The Neighborhood Association Coalition (NAC) was established as an umbrella organization of Neighborhood Associations. The Mission Statement was drafted and finalized in November 1999 and is as follows:

“It is the Mission of the Neighborhood Association Coalition to encourage the City to provide services that are on a neighborhood level and are responsive to the needs and concerns of neighborhoods as articulated by the various Neighborhood Associations. The Coalition will network, share ideas and strategies, and advocate for stronger neighborhoods throughout Lakeland.”

Registered Neighborhood Associations are required to have a representative at NAC meetings. The NAC consists of Presidents and key members of Registered Neighborhood Associations as well as a staff member from Neighborhood Outreach Office. The NAC functions as an independent entity whose purpose is to:

  • Promote communications, collaboration and cooperation between neighborhoods and organizations within the City of Lakeland to foster a sense of community.
  • Unite existing neighborhood associations.
  • Provide a forum to discuss common neighborhood issues.
  • Provide guidance, training and support for new and existing neighborhood associations.
  • Provide advice on policies necessary for the effective and equitable implementation of neighborhood planning.
  • Act as liaison between the neighborhood associations and the City of Lakeland.


The Bylaws contain the rules that outline the structure of the NAC and essentials of how it functions.

Any voting member may propose, in writing, an amendment, or a change to the Bylaws. Any proposed amendment(s) must be approved by a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of voting members presents at the next general meeting.
