Tanglewood Neighborhood Association is a voluntary organization open to residents within the established boundaries. The purpose of this organization is to:
1. Promote better communication and neighborhood unity among residents.
2. Protect and promote the interests of residents of the area.
3. Promote the improvement and betterment of public facilities and services.
4. Promote and encourage community, civic spirit, goodwill and friendship among all residents of the area.
5. Cooperate with county and city officials and other civic and public organizations for the general welfare of residents.
Annual dues are currently $15.00. Quarterly meetings are held at Tanglewood Elementary School, 3060 Overton Park W, and are open to members and non-members. Meetings are forums for neighbors to express concerns, present ideas, and receive updates on city and/or neighborhood issues.
Volunteer block captains are established for every street. Block captains help welcome new residents, distribute association information—especially to those without email access—and encourage participation in the overall Tanglewood community.
Other volunteers participate on committees dealing with long-term issues such as traffic, development and parks, as well as short-term projects such as egret prevention. An active C.O.P. (Citizens on Patrol) team interfaces with the police department assisting in overall crime prevention. Seasonal committees put on activities such as the annual 4th of July Parade, Halloween block party, Cowtown Clean-up and Gathering for Grownups. We are ALWAYS looking for volunteers and hope you will participate. Many volunteer opportunities involve no more than a fun, one-day commitment.
