The Southwestern Hills Neighborhood general meetings are well attended by over 80 neighbors. Speakers and Guests include Parks and Recreation, Police Department, Public Works and City Council. Questions are addressed from the audience and each person has an opportunity to be involved. We will always try to keep you informed on issues via newsletter, Facebook, postcard or our website. Important issues are not an individual matter in our neighborhood, we are all on the team.
What a great neighborhood we live in. Southwestern Hills is a wonderful place to raise a family. We have miles of green parkways, trails and lots of water areas for everyone to enjoy. We have changing beauty in each of the four seasons, and the unity of good neighbors. We see the majesty of wildlife everyday. We are part of a wonderful city.
Our neighbors get involved in several activities throughout the year. We've hosted school board election forums, City Council election forums and formed focus groups regarding neighborhood and city issues. Our "Neighbors Night Out" free picnic, held every August, was attended by over 300 people at the Wakonda Christian Church location. We are proud to be one of the great neighborhoods in a great city.
We believe in neighbors helping each other and becoming a community family. I hope all of you build on that South Side Pride, it's real.
Your neighborhood board works hard for you and our neighborhood. If you have a situation and feel neighborhood support will help, we will always work for a positive solution. Attend neighborhood meetings,stay involved and lets keep it going.
