PURPOSE Barrett Hills Neighborhood Association (BHNA) exists to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of the neighborhood and to support the commonwealth of its members.
What's the difference between a Neighborhood Association and a Homeowners Association? A homeowners association regulates activities, levies assessments and may impose fines on its members. Many have restrictive rules and regulations on how homeowners are allowed to conduct themselves and use their property. Compare that to the purpose of the Barrett Hill Neighborhood Association and you will see there is a major difference.
MEMBERSHIP To be a voting member, (anyone may attend all BHNA meetings and functions) you must be at least 18 years old, be a resident or property owner within the BHNA boundaries and pay dues.
BOUNDARIES The boundaries of BHNA are Lincoln Avenue on the south, Winding Way on the north, the east side of Manzanita Blvd. on the west and Barrett Road on the east.
DUES The membership year and annual dues are from August 1st to July 31st. The annual dues are $10.00 per household. BHNA dues are used for occasional printing costs, community events, assist sub-committees, etc...
