NOPNA was started in 1991 as a response to drug-related crime in the neighborhood. The "Respect the Neighborhood" campaign was founded as a response to drug activity in the area at the time but has evolved to represent more than just a battle against crime; it is a mantra that means we want a clean and safe environment where every neighbor is respected and included in our community. NOPNA Board members receive no compensation other than the neighborly goodwill. All programs and projects are initiated and maintained by volunteers who are passionate about creating a community that cares about each other.

Please contact the NOPNA Board with your comments and questions regarding any neighborhood issue.
