  Neighborhood Association Directory

The Neighborhood Association Directory contains up-to-date information provided to the City by neighborhood associations and community groups.  The city uses the directory to notify registered neighborhood associations of pending Zoning changes and Planning Board actions occurring within a registered neighborhood association's boundary.  Only registered neighborhood associations will be notified.  Information about events and program opportunities of interest to neighborhoods and community groups is sent to all groups in the directory.


We have NEW Update and Applications forms. 

To Update your group's information, please use the Existing Neighborhood Group Update Form

To use the Update Form, enter your address or group's name in the search bar.  A pop-up will appear with group names.  Select the appropriate name.  An update form will appear with the information currently on record.

If you are applying to form a NEW Neighborhood Association or Community Group please use the New Group Application 

(Please note - The Directory is published bimonthly and updates must be received by the 25th of the month for inclusion in the next directory.  However, updates to information are updated continuously to allow for accurate Zoning and Planning Board notifications which occur monthly.)

  Neighborhood Association Vs Homeowner's Association

What is the difference between a Neighborhood Association and a Homeowner's Association?  A neighborhood association is formed by a group of neighbors and is voluntary.  It may or may not collect dues, and may or may not follow the boundaries of a subdivision.  It is typically focused on social activities and creating a sense of community.  A homeowner's association (HOA) is formed as a legal means to enforce covenants, membership is required of all homeowner's in the subdivision, and its boundaries only involve the subdivision.  Social activities may exist if the HOA board is inclined to organize.  Dues are mandatory and the HOA has legal authority to enforce covenants.  Sometimes a homeowner's association also forms a neighborhood association, but they are distinctly different in their functions and purpose.  If you have questions about a homeowner's association or its covenants, please contact the Register of Deeds at (402) 444-7159.
