Neighborhood Council of St. Augustine and neighborhood associations St. Augustine has many distinctive neighborhoods each with its own history, charm and style that is reflected in its architecture and character, and many are served by a neighborhood association that acts as both a social and advocate organization for residents.
Since its formation in 2003, the Neighborhood Council of St. Augustine has served as the umbrella organization for the many neighborhood associations that represent these distinctive areas of the city. The Council has as its purpose the promotion, maintenance, and enhancement of the quality, stability, and vitality of the residential neighborhoods of the city.
The Council works to foster cooperation among existing neighborhood associations, encourages the establishment of associations where none exist, and works closely within a cooperative way with government agencies and public and private organizations on behalf of the city’s residents.
The Council also provides valuable participation opportunities for residents by working with city officials to foster grassroots information sharing between the city and its constituencies by organizing meetings and town hall events.
While the council maintains a close working relationship with the City of St. Augustine, it is an independent not-for-profit organization wholly independent of the city. Additionally, each association sets its own boundaries and selects its own leadership.

Enhancements may be structural in nature, such as park benches or informational signage, or landscaping projects, such as shrubbery or trees.
