Neighborhood association

Minikahda Vista residents are actively involved in the community and their neighborhood association. The association hosts a Plant Swap and Sale with the Browndale Neighborhood, annual neighborhood garage sale attended by residents from all over the metro area, and National Night Out where more than 400 residents get together and celebrate. We also publish a quarterly online newsletter and bi-weekly city news and neighborhood alerts.
