Get to Know Your Neighbors


It was meet and greet time at the annual meeting of the North Hills Community Assn, formerly known at the North Hills Phoenix Assn. 

The organization rose from the ashes of the 1991 Firestorm.  Now it has evolved into a bigger and more diverse community organization that covers a bigger swath of issues and concerns.  These include: safety, emergency preparedness, vegetation management, crime prevention, parking, development and local political issues.
