How We Work
The Golden Gate Neighborhood Council is co-chaired by resident volunteers Karen Youst and Yuliya Rzad. It is part of the City of Oakland Neighborhood Councils (NCs) initiative. NCs are made up of Oakland residents working in partnership with the City of Oakland to address ongoing problems in their neighborhoods. 

Each NC works with an Oakland police officer called a Community Resource Officer (CRO) and a Neighborhood Services Coordinator, a city staffer who helps coordinate engagement with different departments in the City of Oakland. We meet with both of them monthly to discuss our concerns and prioritize the issues our CRO will address before the next meeting.
