ARE YOU IN THE NHCA?

Everyone who lives in the area bounded by Ashby/Highway13, Claremont Blvd., GrizzlyPeak/Skyline, and Thornhill is a member of NHCA. Membership is free, but we depend on your support and participation so that we can cover our expenses (mostly for communication, a little for plants), work on issues that are important to everyone, and represent the community’s views when we interact with city officials.
