A neighborhood association is an inclusive organization that builds bonds within the community, and allows issues and concerns to be addressed. Neighborhood associations are not religious or political organizations, nor are they homeowners’ associations (HOA) whose membership is limited to a specific development with membership fees.
Neighborhood associations offer many benefits to a community such as:
There are many neighborhood associations recognized by the City of Asheville, some of which have helped foster lasting and positive changes. For example, the Haw Creek neighborhood association was successful in advocating for the installation of sidewalks and the renovation of its public library. The Oakley neighborhood association succeeded in influencing the City to keep its neighborhood library open.
As we work on putting together the initial framework for BVNA, we invite you to help spread the word and encourage your neighbors to join our mailing list so that they can receive updates and information, learn about upcoming meetings and ways to get involved. We plan to meet in person in a neighborhood-wide meeting this year and hope that you and your friends will participate.
Become a BVNA member and stay up to date on any upcoming events and latest news. Please take a look at our home page for updates on important issues affecting our area.
