The Homewood Heights Neighborhood Association is a subsection of the larger Rosewood Neighborhood Association in East Austin. Our boundaries are 12th Street to the north, Airport to the east, Rosewood/Oakgrove to the south, and Hargrave to the west.
In the past few years, our neighborhood organization has been active in responding to property crime and drug traffic through our neighborhood. In 2010, through our work with the Austin Police Department, we were able to help resolve a prevalent crime spree in East Austin. Our neighborhood association held internal meetings, met with APD officers, and drastically reduced the crimes of opportunity in our neighborhood.
We're also working with the McKinley Heights and Clifford Sanchez Neighborhood Associations on several initiatives this year. One of our goals is to undertake a beautification effort in our area by planting tress and increasing the plant life in our areas. We're also planning an initiative to bring art to public places near our neighborhoods.
