ABOUT HDRA

The Historic Downtown Residents Association (HDRA) is a neighborhood residents association, organized in 1997 and incorporated in 1999. 

WHAT WE DO

HDRA's goal is to promote a close-knit community and to preserve the unique historic character of our downtown area. 


We are a non-profit, member-supported, volunteer organization that provides a unified voice for our members and works diligently to protect, preserve, and improve our community.

 

COMMITTEES & OFFICERS

 

Since we're an all-volunteer organization, your involvement can make a difference. Consider volunteering as a committee member or if you don't have a lot of time, consider assisting us during one of our events. Whatever your interest, HDRA has an opportunity for you!
