Welcome To:

The Near South

We are a neighborhood that appreciates and embraces diversity. We have stately homes, affordable rentals, funky restaurants, neighbors who care, beautiful churches and wonderful schools. We have easy access to public transportation, ample parking and bike routes. It’s a place with a distinct historic character and tradition of preservation and sustainability.

 
 
 

Our Community

The Near South Neighborhood Association was formed in 1972 by thirty residents who wanted their neighborhood to have an active voice in the formulation of the city’s comprehensive plan. Almost forty years later, NSNA continues to represent the neighborhood with a strong, active voice in city government and neighborhood zoning issues.

Near South Events

As your friends and neighbors, we know a neighborhood benefits from deep connections with the people that live and work around us. That's why the NSNA has always viewed holding and supporting Events within our community as a key part of our mission.

From our neighborhood clean-up, to the luminarias display, we sponsor a wide variety of events throughout the year. On top of that, we'll pay the city fees for anyone who wants to throw a block party in the Near South. Our end goal is to provide as many avenues as possible for people to connect and create lasting community.
