Outreach and Growth

NPHA is a civic and social advocacy organization made up of property owners, residents and businesses of North Prospect Heights. We create and maintain an inclusive platform for our neighborhood’s stakeholders to discuss and debate community issues. We advocate on our neighborhood’s behalf through transparent communication and collaboration. The work we do together will help our neighborhood continue to thrive and build, while improving the quality of life for all.

Our association was developed after a year of outreach and public meetings to assess the needs of our community. As we expand further, it is our goal to encourage participation throughout our area, and for our association to reflect the varied character of our neighborhood. We currently are comprised of nearly 300 members and we continue to grow through active outreach and positive word of mouth.

Our current geographic parameters are defined by the map and described below:

●  Southern boundary: St. Marks from Flatbush Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue

●  Northern boundary: Atlantic Avenue from Flatbush Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue

●  Western boundary: Flatbush Avenue from St. Marks Avenue to Atlantic Avenue

●  Eastern boundary: Vanderbilt Avenue from St. Marks Avenue to Atlantic Avenue

These parameters will continue to expand as members from contiguous areas join in larger numbers.

As the geographic boundaries make obvious, our members live in an area of meaningful change, at the same time that the area is divided into multiple community board districts and has potential new development overseen by both the city and state. We hope to enable our community to give input into any further changes to our community, while at the same time helping it adjust as temporary modifications to its quality of life occur. We look forward to working together with you on the many community issues facing us all.
