The North Hills Community Association (NHCA), a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization in the North Oakland Hills area bounded by:

* North: Berkeley City Border and the Contra Costa County Line
* East: Contra Costa County Line
* South: Thornhill Drive
* West: Highway 13

It also includes homes located in the city of Berkeley adjacent to these boundaries.   [click here for a City of Oakland map or click here for a Google map in context]  

The mission and purpose of the NHCA is to develop and sustain a community that is safe, beautiful and a welcoming place in which to live. The NHCA seeks to keep residents informed and promotes community involvement in local issues.

Cognizant of the dangers of   fire  and earthquake, we strive to encourage neighbors to be prepared for such emergency situations that come with living in the hills of the Bay Area. Getting to know one's neighbors not only makes life more pleasant, it is a vital first step in creating a web of safety.

North Hills Community functions as an advocacy group that speaks for neighborhood issues such as fire safety at City Hall and elsewhere. It disseminates information about decisions or services which impact the community.

We depend for our strength on the membership and commitment of neighbors. We invite you to join NHCA. Our annual membership meeting is in March. Our Board meets regularly on the third Monday of the month.   Meeting locations and times will be confirmed each month on the Announcements community board (see below) and on this website in the calender section.

On this website, you can subscribe to our online community bulletin board, OpenForum, as well as Announcements, to receive news updates directly from the Association.

Please join us; get involved in your community! Even if you do not attend meetings, your membership, interest and dues ensure that our voice continues to speak for safety and the improvement of our neighborhood.
