We would love to meet you. Geographically, we are one of the larger Neighborhood Associations and we strive to represent all of our neighbors and neighborhoods, from lower SW Broadway Drive and Gander Ridge, to Green Hills.  That means we want you - your energy, your solutions, your voice.

We also discuss whose voices we might be missing, including the elderly and busy parents. Not everybody is at a stage in life in which they can easily come to a meeting. Please know that we regularly check our email and respond to problems and suggestions, and can help neighbors navigate the City Bureaus. 

Some neighbors like to work with us on a single event or issue--say park cleanup, the yearly picnic, or perhaps a particular traffic, policy or right-of-way problem. There are many ways to connect.
