Our community.

For the past 55 years, the Neartown Association has worked to improve the quality of life throughout the unique and historic inner-city neighborhoods that make up greater Montrose. We serve as the neighborhood council of the Neartown/Montrose Super Neighborhood #24 and bring residents, businesses, institutions, and other stakeholders together to inform, discuss, and work collectively on issues affecting our community. We provide the Neartown/Montrose community a voice to the Mayor and City Council of Houston and other public officials.
