How We Can Be of Service

A neighborhood association has many benefits for its residents and the community as a whole. Here's a overview of how we seek to be of service to our neighborhood.

Building Community & Respect

Unlike HOAs, whose membership is made up of homeowners in a development, neighborhood associations encourage homeowners, renters, businesses, schools, and churches to participate. This more inclusive structure builds bonds within the community, allowing issues and concerns to be addressed with knowledge of the neighborhood’s varied needs and perspectives. Fun Fact: Studies show knowing your neighbors has the potential to positively impact your mental health and well-being. Having a neighbor who you can turn to with an immediate need or who you know will watch over your house when you’re away increases a sense of security at home. And when you know your neighbors, you’re more likely to respect the neighborhood. A neighborhood association can help to build a foundation of respect and awareness of neighbors, leading to a greater sense of community and the assurance that someone has your back.

Giving Neighborhood Residents A Voice

Another key purpose of neighborhood associations is to faciliate a forum for members of the neighborhood association to agree upon issues, then take those issues to local government acting as a voice for the community. As an organization we are in regular contact with local government officials, such as our City Council representative.   Due to this regular dialogue we contribute more “eyes and ears” to our local government officials -- helping them track real-time events and issues, organize neighborhood cleanups, raise zoning issues, and most importantly keeping our local government representatives connected to the concerns of our neighborhood residents.

Addressing Targeted Concerns & Issues

Whether you’re concerned about litter along our streets or you want to organize regular neighborhood social events, as a neighborhood association we can help address targeted concerns and issues. We host monthly meetings that are open to the public which provide a forum for folks to share information that pertains to our neighborhood from questions, concerns, and many other helpful topics. ​ By providing a space to bring up concerns and discuss solutions, it can help make the neighborhood a better place for all.

Improving Neighborhood Life

At the end of the day it's our hope that our collective benefits add up to ultimately improve neighborhood life overall. From keeping the parks and streets clean and safe to organizing social events, we strive to improve the quality of life for you and your neighbors. However, we cannot do this alone. If you are a resident of the Thomas Square Streetcar Historic District please consider joining as a member of the TSNA. With every member we add our collective voice becomes stronger and we are able to achieve even more for our community.
