Comeback from what? For those new to the North Hills Community Association, you may not know that our neighborhood group grew out of folks coming together in the wake of the 1991 firestorm in the Oakland / Berkeley hills. News of current wildfires raging, the toll that the pandemic has taken on our neighbors, plus the 30th anniversary of the Oct. ’91 fires on the horizon led NHCA to create an online place to share stories about that tragic firestorm, to find information to keep safe in future emergencies, and to promote NHCA gatherings that bring us together - our Community Comeback.
In addition to the online collection, we are also organizing an in-person event for the community on Sunday, October 17, at lake Temescal. Read more here and come out and celebrate with us
The NHCA has ramped down certain operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We respect the importance of sheltering in place. We will resume our public safety programs, advocacy work and attention to community gardens as conditions allow. In keeping with our mission, we will post public safety and health information as appropriate. To learn more about the NHCA, check out Our Story.
