Step Up and Get Involved in Your Neighborhood Association

Did you know that the Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association is an all-volunteer run organization?

Our volunteers are a group of neighbors and friends working together to organize fun community events, plan neighborhood meetings, track important issues, and get to know our neighbors at monthly community meetings.

Want to meet new friends and find out about issues affecting you and your neighbors?

Don’t get left out of the conversation.

Neighborhood Elections: May 2018

Each May, the Neighborhood Association holds elections for its all-volunteer board.

Some of our available positions are Treasurer, Land Use, Communications, and many more — including delegate positions to fit your passion (emergency preparedness, community garden, youth and family, and more!).

There’s no easier way to get to know your neighborhood than by volunteering on a committee or as a board member. (Foster-Powell residents need to attend just three meetings to be eligible to serve on the board.)

Put your ideas to work and pick up a few new skills along the way!

Want to learn more?
