Welcome to the PlanCheckNC website.  We invite you to learn more about this exciting alliance of Neighborhood Councils and concerned stakeholders.

What is PlanCheckNC ?

PlanCheckNC was created by Neighborhood Council  stakeholders to promote more stakeholder participation in planning and land use issues and make government more responsive to local community needs. The purpose of PlanCheckNC is to help Neighborhood Councils and their stakeholders have the knowledge and tools to develop a vision reflective of the values of neighborhood residents and to develop and implement a land use framework that enables all stakeholders to feel that they are a part of the community– supported, safe and valued by the community.

We encourage you to attend one of our upcoming programs for education, for news, to share ideas and to network. This website provides another valuable tool. View this site often to learn more about PlanCheckNC and be sure to click on In The News — this is our bulletin board for up to date information. Please consider joining with us to create, implement and protect the visions of our communities.


Education Programs and Issue Forums are held on the second Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.-12 noon.  All interested stakeholders are invited to participate.

Affordable Housing

• Who qualifies – What is the maximum income?
• How much are the rents?
• Who lives in them, what are their jobs?
• Where does the government funding money come from? What are the restrictions and • requirements on its use?
• Can the community change the design and location if they dislike it? Why does it get “incentives”?
• What kind of design elements are required?
• Where can it be situated?
• Why is parking reduced?

We welcome Maurice Ramirez, who works at AMCAL Multi-Housing and has built new affordable housing apartments throughout California and preserved old hotels in the mid-Wilshire area, using city, county and state taxpayer funds.
