WHAT IS A NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION?
Do you want your voice to be heard?
Do you want to know what is happening in your neighborhood?
A Neighborhood Association is comprised of a group of residents and business representatives who devote their time and energy to improve and enhance a well-defined geographic area where they and others live. Neighborhood association meetings, like earlier town meetings, provide a place to meet neighbors, exchange ideas, prioritize projects, propose solutions and implement plans for the neighborhood. Most neighborhood associations are concerned with issues that affect the quality of life in the community.
