Are there things you would like to change about your neighborhood? Do you see code compliance issues, or would you like to have a speaker from the city come talk to your neighborhood group about how to make your area a better place? Stay connected to city officials by registering your neighborhood.

The City of Dallas’s Planning and Urban Design Department wants to hear from your hamlet, and you can register your Home Owner’s Association (HOA) or Neighborhood Association with the city so that the city is aware of your group and you can stay abreast of city activities.

By registering, you will be put on this interactive map that shows the neighborhoods and HOAs who have opted in, you will receive communication from departments at the city with neighborhood resources and events, grant opportunities and organization assistance offered by the city.

East Dallas is unsurprisingly well-represented, with Glencoe Park, Lakewood, Lakewood Heights, Wilshire Heights, Forest Hills, Junius Heights, Vickery Place, Lower Greenville and others already in the system. But several neighborhoods have yet to be registered (looking at you Greenland Hills and Little Forest Hills).

Register your neighborhood or HOA here.
