What is a Neighborhood Association?

MacArthur Heights Neighborhood Association Annual Park Clean Up

I. Definition

A Neighborhood Association is, quite simply, neighbors living within a designated area of the City who are concerned about issues affecting their neighborhood and who have decided to work together to protect and ensure a better social, economic, and business climate in their Neighborhood.

II. Purpose

Neighborhood Associations act as a “voice” for the neighborhood residents, a somewhat official link to local government and the larger community. Many neighborhoods find that by banding together and forming a Neighborhood Association, they are better able to meet the collective needs of the Neighborhood.
