The Neighborhood Steering Committee (NSC) is a grassroots group of neighbors who volunteer their time, skills, and desire to help resolve issues resulting from the operations and activities of Head-Royce School (HRS). We engage with the City of Oakland and HRS to advocate for the neighbors' points of view. 


The NSC Mission

Create a safe neighborhood where residents are respected, and the quality of life is maintained.

To help support this mission, we started a Go Fund Me campaign. Contributions to the NSC are used to cover expenses, including:

  • Filing fees to the City of Oakland
  • Services of experts to study noise, environmental impacts, water & land use, engineering, traffic
  • Administrative costs such as website maintenance and printing

Please contribute what you can and feel free to share with neighbors, family and friends on Social Media and through email.
