Neighborhood Associations


How to form an Assoc.Neighbors who want to share ideas and work cooperatively to improve their neighborhood can form neighborhood associations. For a neighborhood association to be included in the City's Neighborhood Association Contact List:

  • they need to define their boundaries,
  • their membership must be voluntary and open to all neighborhood residents whether they own property or not, and
  • they need to tell city staff about their association.

Keep your neighborhood association information up-to-date! Accurate contact information makes your neighborhood association accessible for:

  • potential residents and businesses,
  • other neighborhood associations, and
  • notices and information from City departments.
Please tell us about changes!
