Southern Crossing Neighborhood Association Board

The Southern Crossing Neighborhood Association (SCNA) board is comprised of volunteers working on behalf of our neighborhood.

We encourage your participation whether it is as a one-time volunteer for an event, general interest in some of our initiatives around traffic or land use, special projects such as fire safety and septic to sewer, acting as a liaison between neighbors and the unique business district within our borders, or interest in joining the board - we want to hear from you!
