Membership & Payments:
The Phoenix Homesteads Association was created to unify the residents of our neighborhood and to strengthen our community. Our goals are to create a safe and secure environment, to beautify our neighborhood, and to build a shared sense of community. Achieving these goals will benefit all in this area by increasing our property values and improving our living environment.
First, you're considered a member of the association simply by living in our area. Second, Voluntary dues are $20 per year. We send out a friendly reminder each year in the Luminaria flier, along with a self addressed envelope. Monies are used to pay for the three annual social events our association hosts: 1) Ice Cream Social/Movie in the Park, 2) Breakfast in the Park, and 3) Luminarias. Please consider supporting the Phoenix Homesteads Association. We need your help in achieving our goals.
In June 1996 the Phoenix Homestead Neighborhood Association expanded its boundaries from the existing boundaries of Thomas Road to Osborn Road, 26th Street to 28th Street, to include 26th Street to 24th Street, Thomas Road to Osborn Road. There were several reasons the PHNA expanded its boundaries west to 24th Street.
• Interested neighbors west of 26th Street began to inquire of the PHNA, requesting this expansion and inclusion in PHNA activities
• Interested neighbors west of 26th Street began to participate in PHNA activities
• There were no active neighborhood associations from 24th Street to 26th Street, Thomas Road to Osborn Road
• PHNA expanding its boundaries west to 24th Street made the most sense to keep the neighborhood intact. There were active neighborhood associations on the west side of 24th Street and on the south side of Thomas Road.
PHNA expanded its boundaries by changing its By-Laws through a vote of its existing membership. PHNA then actively sought out board members who lived in the expanded boundaries. To build a sense of community throughout the whole neighborhood the PHNA actively included the expanded area in all association activities, including door-to-door delivery of regular PHNA newsletters, the Aleppo pine tree planting project, neighborhood clean-ups and the annual luminaries’ event.
Since this expansion, the PHNA has successfully worked to build a strong community. There are now approximately 400 households in the PHNA.
