Why Organize Your Neighborhood?
Whether your neighborhood is historic, well established or just being developed, there are issues that will affect your quality of life and your enjoyment of your home. Many of the established neighborhood associations have come together over a crisis: crime, zoning changes, non-compatible land uses, flooding and many others. Whether called neighborhood, homeowners or business association, such an organization can be a long term representative for you in the larger community. Composed of people who live in the neighborhood, who better to work on common problems, keep abreast of developments that affect neighborhoods and be available to voice your concerns when issues arise.
Quarterly General Membership Meeting brings members together to listen to knowledgeable and relevant speakers and to discuss neighborhood issues and concerns.
