What is a neighborhood association?

A neighborhood association is comprised of resident volunteers within a geographic location in Santa Ana. These resident volunteers come together based on needs or concerns to help improve their neighborhood. An organized neighborhood association can influence positive changes throughout their neighborhood by creating a sense of community pride among neighbors and by establishing a recognized political voice within City Hall. By focusing neighborhood efforts on specific issues, visual changes become apparent. The neighborhood will also have a better understanding of how the Santa Ana city government functions.
