Neighborhood association

Creekside has a small, but active neighbors group which formed in 1996. They coordinate an annual summer block party for all neighbors. The steering committee, made up of officers and Creekside neighbors, meets twice a year to conduct business. Neighbors are encouraged to join. The annual meeting for the entire neighborhood is in April.
