Who We Are

SNA works with the neighborhood to:

  • Enhance quality of life
  • Advocate for the neighborhood’s benefit
  • Develop and advance a vision for the neighborhood
  • Create inviting ways to engage in civic life

  • Represents Summit in citywide policy-making discussions on issues such as planning, parks and zoning
  • Coordinates fundraisers and social events where neighbors can gather
  • Sponsors focused initiatives such as the Election Forum, Redirecting Miriam Hospital Development and Improving North Main Street
  • Connects and informs Summit’s more than 3000 households through the SNA website and Summit newsletter
