Moral of the Story
The RNNC model is worth studying by other groups. If you were to ask someone if an organization with no rules, no officers, no dues, could last for almost two decades based solely on a common belief about neighborhoods, they’d probably smile. Keeping it simple has worked. There have been no internal politics within the group and people from the neighborhoods have been able to cultivate solutions to issues they face.
As the city representatives collaborate and community people are empowered the advantages of this model will prevail.
