JPNC election date set; nomination papers ready

The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council, a JP-wide neighborhood association, will hold its biannual election on Oct. 19. Nomination papers for candidates are now available.

The 20-member JPNC was created by former Mayor Raymond Flynn in 1985 to advise the City on neighborhood issues. Five council members represent the entire neighborhood, while the rest represent particular subdistricts. The members are elected by JP residents ages 16 and older.

The JPNC’s biggest regular job is advising the City on zoning and licensing requests. It also often provides a forum for big neighborhood debates and developments.

Nomination papers are available online at and at the following locations: Curtis Hall, 20 South St.; Connolly Branch Library, 433 Centre St.; Egleston Square Branch Library, 2044 Columbus Ave.; and Jamaica Plain Branch Library, 12 Sedgwick St.
