Neighborhood Associations

Give your neighborhood a united voice by forming a neighborhood association. Whether you hope to work out neighborhood issues (crime, code violations, etc.) or are simply looking to foster a sense of community, neighborhood associations help bring people together.

By registering your association with the City, you can be even more effective by receiving notifications of zoning changes and development nearby.

To find an existing association in your area, visit the Neighborhood Database.

Getting Started

The Neighborhood Office can assist you in starting a neighborhood association.

From establishing boundaries to determining goals, we have the resources to get you started, including sample agendas, minutes, by-laws, newsletters, and much more.

By registering with the City of Fort Worth as a neighborhood association, your organization is officially recognized by the City and will receive valuable information from various City departments, including notification of zoning and development within or near your boundaries.

Download the Neighborhood Policy for more information on registration, or contact Neighborhoods and Community Outreach.

Voluntary Neighborhood Associations

A voluntary neighborhood association is an organization that represents all residents in the neighborhood and operates through an open, democratic process to improve or maintain the overall quality of life for all individuals within those boundaries. Membership in a voluntary neighborhood association is open to all the residents in the neighborhood but participation is optional.

Mandatory Neighborhood Associations

Mandatory neighborhood associations are established to maintain common areas and enforce private deed restrictions. Unlike a voluntary association, membership in the association is not optional. When an individual purchases property within a mandatory association, the individual automatically becomes a member.
