Letter to Editor of The Needham Times - August, 2016

The Needham Heights Neighborhood Association (NHNA) has been in existence since 1980. Its purpose is to enhance and protect the residential character and livability of the area. Our focus is on improving the Town of Needham as a whole while ensuring that Needham Heights (the gateway into Needham from Route 95) continues to be an attractive community in which to live and do business. Over the years the organization has gained the respect and support of Town leaders and local businesses as well as neighbors in the community.

Each year we identify particular topics of interest to the Needham Community to discuss at public forums with designated speakers. Over the past several years we have sponsored public forums on the following Community Topics of interest:

  1. Needham Business Center and Town of Needham Economic Development;
  2. Route 95/128 Add-A-Lane Highway Project;
  3. Highland Avenue/Needham Street N Square Corridor Reconstruction Project;
  4. Town of Needham Zoning and Planning Board Issues;
  5. Town of Needham Rosemary Pool Recreation Area Development

Our members come from all locations in Needham and we welcome new members who would like to join our organization and take an active role in our program for future planned events. If you are interested in learning more about the "Heights Association" and membership/leadership opportunities, please contact me at (781) 449-8888 or via e-mail at More information is available about the NHNA at our Website.
