About Us

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.
