Land Use and Safety

Land Use
Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association (ALNA) does not currently have a land use committee, however, we encourage neighbors with questions about development, vacant buildings, transportation and other issues to contact our Land Use Chair, Nate Young, by emailing As always, we invite you to reach out and let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

The Office of Neighborhood Involvement offers a variety of problem-soling resources for getting help with ongoing crime, graffiti, neighborhood watch, crime stats, help with problem liquor establishments, etc.
Visit for a variety of resources, as well as for several handouts on all sorts of topics.
