One of the most efficient ways to stay connected to your community is to join your neighborhood association. Traditionally, neighborhood associations are groups of neighbors uniting to share ideas and work cooperatively to make their neighborhood a more pleasing place to live. Such groups offer residents the collective voice necessary to advocate upon a variety of issues, while greatly improving two-way communication between the City and its residents. Moreover, members will be able to connect with their neighbors, residents likely sharing similar community concerns. Most importantly, neighborhood associations build relationships and support the “strength in numbers” theory. If you are not already a member of your respective neighborhood association, included below is the contact information for each group operating in Martindale-Brightwood.
