Q - Are you realtors, trying to sell me a house or something?
A: No. We're just neighbors trying to enhance the community and communication in Faircrest (The old Neighborhood Association had realtors on its board, but we're not them!)
Q - How long has the Faircrest Neighborhood Association been around?
A: The current incarnation started in 2016, or thereabouts, but was completely unofficial. Since then, a group of folks have been planning parties, social events, and now, as of 2023, we have a new Faircrest Neighborhood Association.
Q - What happened to the old neighborhood association in the late 2000's and 2010s (or the one before that in the 1990's)?
A: There have been at least three previous incarnations of the Faircrest Neighborhood Association.
Beginning in 1966, there was a marketing arm of the property developers called the Faircrest Neighborhood Association (FNA) that tried to make moving into the newly developed neighborhood a more welcoming experience (and sell houses).
In the 1980's-1990's until at least 2001, there was an active and vibrant FNA, but it was mostly informal, with duties being transferred from person to person according to who had time to volunteer. There were some really neat projects and ongoing work toward neighborhood beautification that were begun in that era.
Then there was a gap of around 5-10 years, where the FNA was dormant/inactive. In the late 2010's, a new group of folks set up an email list, website, and put out at least one newsletter. By 2015, however, that group also became dormant/inactive. Contact with the old neighborhood associations has been sparse.
2023 - We have started a new FNA from scratch, from a few like-minded folks who wished to live in a more interconnected, socially active community. All new board, all new energy, but still the same great neighborhood (with a lot of new folks)!
