The 19th Ward Community Association is a group of neighbors, local businesses and churches, all striving to preserve the unique character of our neighborhood. Through the Community Association, we all work together to foster a strong sense of community, preserve public safety, and make our neighborhood a more beautiful place to live.
The Community Association sponsors many annual events: a luminary evening in January to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr., skating parties, home and garden tours, summertime potluck picnics, candlelight dinners, community-wide yard sales, an awards dinner for outstanding citizens and merchants, and Square Fair, our annual summertime celebration.
We fight for the public safety of all residents by sponsoring a PAC-TAC unit, maintaining a close relationship with our local Neighborhood Service Center, and by monitoring and acting against open-air drug markets and rundown properties.
The Community Association and area residents have consistently worked to maintain our neighborhood as an integrated neighborhood where differences of race, age, socio-economic status, religion, and sexual orientation are not only tolerated, but celebrated.
The 19th Ward Community Association is a member run organization. Twenty three districts in the neighborhood are each represented by a delegate who serves on delegates’ council. An Executive Committee, elected annually by the membership, serves as the board of directors for the organization. See Leadership page for more information (link).
