We are the Amapas Neighborhood Association (ANA) : residents and business-owners – both Mexicans and ex-pats – working together to improve our quality of life through improvements in Security, Streets and Infrastructure, and Responsible Development.
We are the official ‘voice’ of Amapas at City Hall, and work with the City when we can, but try to do for the neighborhood what the City often does not. We do this through public-private partnerships, by working with other organizations, and by ‘bootstrapping’ with our own initiative and resources. The ANA consists of Administrator Viviana Testón, and is run by a Board of Directors. All are VOLUNTEERS who contribute our time, talents, energy – and, yes, dinero – to the goal of making things better in Amapas. The more active members we have, the louder our collective voice, and the more we can get done for the neighborhood.
The ANA mission is to improve the quality of life in Amapas, which has the side-benefit of also maintaining and improving our property values. We do that by focusing on Security, Streets and Development Control. A large, informed and active membership is vital to our continued success, so constant communication through this website and frequent ANA e-blasts to our members is crucial.
All that sounds like a lot of work – and it is. But we lighten the load and foster a sense of neighborhood through our Social & Special Events, including special ‘Amapas Nights Out’ at local restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as various meetings, public forums and Fundraisers.
Read on through this website to learn about our accomplishments. In addition to this website, you can follow us and comment with other neighbors on our Facebook page. We also send a regular email update to members.
The Amapas Neighborhood Association needs the support – and membership – of every resident to continue making a difference here – if you haven’t done so already, join today!
