The HIA arranges for and manages the purchase of private security services which are paid through individual subscriptions. The program offers regular patrols, monitoring of property while residents are away, emergency support, and other services. An e-mail list is maintained by the Association which may be used to alert residents of a situation quickly.
Liaison Between Neighbors
The HIA is one of the best vehicles available to residents for resolving disputes or encouraging dialogue between neighbors. The HIA Board of Directors can offer a bridge between residents over matters of difference.
At times the interests of the neighborhood must be protected with the help of legal counsel. HIA acts as a coordinating group for such efforts, collecting funds and retaining attorneys as needed.
There are countless special projects in which HIA participates and encourages the involvement of neighbors, from block parties to Easter Egg hunts; from roadside clean-ups to special awards.
Welcoming & Informing New Neighbors
HIA informs neighbors about important events and developments through regular email blasts (add listserv, MailChimp, etc), open Board meetings, special bulletins, public meetings, occasional leaflets, news coverage, word-of-mouth and of course this website. Each new neighbor is greeted by a member of our welcoming committee to help them understand our community and opportunities to participate…and feel welcome!
