The GNC is a city-wide alliance of neighborhoods that works to improve the quality of life in the city and its neighborhoods by addressing issues of city-wide importance. 

Each neighborhood appoints voting members to the congress, with the number determined by the neighborhood’s size. College Hill has two voting members, currently Janet Frommann and David Arneke.
