ONA is dedicated to enhancing the value of a Membership by advocacy at City Hall, engaging and educating members through regular communications, organizing social events, providing opportunities to learn about topics of interest, and forging connections among neighbors and with our City Government.
Advocacy: With the ONA Mission in mind the ONA Board monitors issues on the City Council agenda and advises residents of agenda topics that impact our neighborhood.

We express our views to City Council and encourage our residents to do the same.
Communication: ONA distributes a regular Newsletter highlighting City Council meetings and reporting on events and issues related to the interests of our neighbors. Our Spotlight Series covers local City officials, residents, or topics in more detail. Surveys are conducted to keep the ONA Board appraised of issues important to the residents.
