Community Liaison's Neighbor Resource Page

Starting a Neighborhood Association:

It is an important fact: "We all need our neighbors." The homeowners, tenants and businesses that share a neighborhood all have something to gain by working together to improve the communities in which they live. There are differences and diversity that make up neighborhoods interesting and unique places to inhabit. Your participation in the neighborhood's development and welcoming ideas can help address many of the neighborhood's interests and concerns.

The information provided is a draft guide to assist you in starting a neighborhood association and related information on associations. By no means, these suggestions are a complete set of rules that must be followed. It is merely a starting point with helpful hints and methods to effectively organize your association. Legal counsel is always recommended to fit the unique needs of your neighborhood association's By-Laws, Covenants, Restrictions, and Compliance Issues with the City and State.


Keep in mind: Each neighborhood is very unique and a consensus on the By-Laws has to be met by the appointed board officers from your association.
