Our Mission

The Summit Neighborhood Association is a non-profit, all-volunteer membership organization dedicated to expanding citizen engagement and improving the quality of life in the Summit neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island. We carry out this mission by:

  • providing a forum for community discussion via forums such as monthly and annual meetings, newsletters, and electronic communications;
  • connecting neighbors by sponsoring and partnering on regular and special community events;
  • representing Summit’s 3000+ households in citywide policy-making discussions on issues such as planning, parks, and zoning; and
  • leading focused projects on neighborhood beautification, revitalization, and improvement.

Board of Directors

SNA is led by a Board of Directors, which is elected by the membership at our Annual Meeting each spring. The Board of Directors meets monthly on the third Monday of the month at Summit Commons. View the current officers and members of the board here.

All Board meetings are open to the public, and we invite and encourage all our neighbors to attend! SNA exists to serve the community, and your energy and ideas are needed. To find out what the Board is working on, click here to see meeting minutes and agendas.
