Our Goals

A neighborhood association free and open to everyone
Go to FREE TO JOIN

FREE TO JOIN

No membership dues ever. We want to be as open as possible and part of that is reducing barriers to membership and to voting.

Go to INCLUSIVE AND TRANSPARENT

INCLUSIVE AND TRANSPARENT

All residents and businesses are invited to join their friends in Heritage Neighborhood. Everyone in the community is welcome. All discussions occur in public online forums and a friendly atmosphere.

Go to ONLINE Participation

ONLINE Participation

Voting on local issues should be easy and everyone should be able to participate. We use a secure online voting system, Helios. Any Heritage resident can sign up to vote at any time during our votes.   We understand that people have busy lives and can’t always attend meetings. Online discussion and voting gives everyone the chance to participate, resulting in better representation of the views of Heritage residents.

Go to FRIENDLY

FRIENDLY

We have social hours instead of formal meetings. One of our main goals is to create a place where people can get to know their neighbors in person. We assist neighbors that need help navigating permitting and variance requests at the city, and we help the community in any way that we can.

Our Ethos

Have a voice. Be neighborly.

We envision a neighborhood group that’s friendly and social. More importantly, we want to start an inclusive dialogue that proactively addresses our place in a changing Austin.

Friends of Heritage exists to engage constructively with neighborhood residents, business owners, and stakeholders to improve quality of life for everyone who lives and works in Heritage.

We invite you to join us to build better relationships as a community and collaborate on a forward-looking approach to a vital, livable community now and years from now.
