2020 Membership Drive

Happy New Year!

As we begin 2020 and look forward to another year in our neighborhoods, we would like to invite you to join our Civic League. Membership in this group helps connect you with your neighbors and with City of Norfolk officials so that you can stay informed and have a voice in what happens in our area. Your support helps us host annual events such as our neighborhood yard sale, picnics, and winter holiday socials, print occasional fliers and regular newsletters, and maintain our digital communications. These things are small, but make a difference to our neighbors, particularly those who may not be on social media. Join or renew with the form below or online! Our membership dues this year are increasing slightly from $15 annually to $20 annually (per household).

All are welcome to attend meetings, which are held at 7:00 PM on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Christ Lutheran Church (6510 N Military Hwy). We would love to see more of our neighbors at these meetings even if you do not choose to become paid members. Our Civic League encompasses some 1100 homes and is one of the largest in the city, yet we have less than 13% of households who have joined or attended a meeting. We know that we cannot adequately represent the interests of our neighborhoods, so we need your voices and thoughts.

This next year will bring a few new options for members, such as being able to join meetings online remotely (for those who cannot make it in person), and an online calendar with recurring dates of interest (recycling days, street sweeping, meetings, etc.). Let’s also bring some new people in the new year!
