Pretty much everywhere. Geographic administrative units are typically 
larger than single neighborhoods, especially suburban neighborhoods such 
as Sharingbrook. (It's not clear that Manhattan, KS has any such units; 
its commissioners are elected at-large.) Are there examples of places 
where there is a one-to-one mapping between neighborhoods and 
administrative units?
