The Southwest Neighborhood is bounded by the traction line on the North, following Heney Road, to Binford Lake Parkway, to Towle on the East, on the South the city limits, and the city limits on the west.
The Southwest Neighborhood Association (SWNA) is very active. The community works well together, in many different facets, that all result in improvements or enhancements of the neighborhood. SWNA has committees that lead the community on such things as: safety (crime prevention, fire safety, graffiti, and more), traffic (concerns, future road developments, etc.), land use (concerns, future developments, etc.), and the Executive Board. The attendance at SWNA meetings is very high which reflects the concerns and pride that people living in the neighborhood share.
The SWNA meets on the third Thursday of January, April, July and October. If needed there are occasionally other meeting times.
