"Save the Date": May 6th from 12:30-3:00pm at the newly upgraded Hillandale Local Park

The HCA is planning a gathering to celebrate the new Hillandale Local Park Picnic Pavilion. Come and meet our county Parks and Planning folks who built the pavilion. Our local firefighters and District 3 police will also be there. Take this opportunity to learn about the future park plans. More information will be coming soon. Hope to see you there!

HCA Membership Drive

Although we do not have mandatory annual dues and the Hillandale Citizen's Association is not incorporated, we are still a very active and busy neighborhood association with a history that goes back decades. Each year we solicit a voluntary $20 dues contribution from all households in the greater Hillandale community. This money goes to cover our basic operating expenses each year and maintain a reserve fund. It also helps to pay for community activities such as the holiday party and National Night Out. Don't miss your last chance to update your listing in the Hillandale directory. Keep an eye out in the next weeks for a letter from the HCA detailing how your listing in the Hillandale directory will look. This is the last opportunity to make changes for the 2017 Directory. All paid members receive a copy of the printed Hillandale Directory with neighbor listings, a map, and relevant community information.

A Hillandale Greeting!

Do you have a new neighbor? Have you just moved here yourself? Please email the Greeters Committee to ensure you/your neighbor receives a proper Hillandale welcome!

Hillandale has its own custom for welcoming new residents - the Hillandale Greeters Committee! New neighbors will be visited by a member of the Hillandale Greeters committee a few months after they settle in. The greeters, some who have lived in the community for more than 20 years, give our new neighbors a very warm welcome. They provide a comprehensive brochure which includes the history of Hillandale and important local information such as phone numbers for residential services and utilities. The greeters inform our newest residents about the activities of the Hillandale Citizens Association and encourage everyone to join and become an active member of the Hillandale community.
