Community Advisory Committees


Community Advisory Committees 
(CAC)

The Community Advisory Committees (CACs) are part of Mayor Tim Kelly’s ONE CHATTANOOGA plan to strengthen community engagement and services in our Community Centers. CACs allow the City of Chattanooga to openly communicate and engage with local communities through our Community Centers. By working together, we can leverage our strengths and resources to meet immediate needs, address systemic issues, and build for the future. 

Community Advisory Committees (CAC) are composed of neighborhood stakeholders who serve as stewards and advisors to 9 Chattanooga communities. CACs are composed of residents, business/property owners, faith leaders, area workers and community youth. Each of the 9 communities are represented by a 9-member committee, appointed by Mayor Kelly, City Council representatives and Community Center staff. The 9 communities are broken into regions which cover multiple neighborhoods across the city. CACs are community-based committees focused on improving neighborhood outcomes.
