In 2001 Mayor Jim Brainard asked the Department of Community Relations to create a means for neighborhood association presidents to be better equipped to do their job. The idea sprung from a discussion during a meeting of the Carmel Business Alliance regarding the benefits of quality of life in Carmel and its ability to attract companies here and retain them. This group was concerned about the quality of older neighborhoods in Carmel and wanted to make sure that we were doing all we could to help the neighborhood association presidents network and help each other find solutions to common problems.
CNAN continues to be one of the best ways for us to share information about City departments and services. The City also benefits because this group shares their concerns about issues affecting their neighborhoods directly allowing for immediate response from the City and possible resolution to the problem.
