The Miracle Mile is served by the Mid City West Community Council that is a Los Angeles city-certified neighborhood council made up of people who live, work, own property or have some other connection to a neighborhood. Neighborhood Council board members are elected or selected to their positions by the neighborhoods themselves.

There are currently 45 board members They hold regular meetings on the second Tuesday of each month. Several MCW committees also meet monthly.

Neighborhood Councils receive public funds of $45,000 each year to support their activities. This may include creating events and programs that respond to the unique needs of their community or advocating on behalf of the issues they care about such as crime, roads and streets, the creation of safe spaces for children, gangs, and economic development.

Representatives from Neighborhood Councils:

Receive advance notice of issues and projects that are important to them and their neighborhoods so they can understand, discuss them, and voice the opinions of the neighborhood to the City before final decisions are made.

Meet with the Mayor to discuss priorities in the annual development of the City budget, prior to its submittal and approval by City Council.
