Background and Analysis:
The City of Olympia originally entered into a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Coalition of Neighborhood Associations on July 13, 2012. The City and the Coalition renewed their MOU (with slight revisions) for three additional years on July 7, 2015. That MOU expired July 8, 2015, though the two parties have continued to honor its provisions since that date while working on an updated MOU.

The Coalition re-named itself the Council of Neighborhood Associations (CNA), and proposes entering into the attached MOU with the City for an additional three years. The draft MOU recognizes the CNA as an entity that can provide assistance to the City and the individual recognized neighborhood associations established under Chapter 18.86 of the Municipal Code. It also addresses a number of issues of joint interest between the City and the CNA.

The proposed MOU would renew the primary provisions of the previous MOU with CNA. It includes several revisions to reflect updated conditions and remove outdated provisions. The purpose and general topic areas covered by the MOU remain the same.
