Gentrification in Austin Neighborhoods and Elsewhere

Shortly after moving to Austin, I joined the local neighborhood association. Our neighborhood group is not a homeowners’ association (HOA) with governance over architectural design or modifications, and it is not mandatory to join it. My reason for joining the HOA was to meet new neighbors and stay current with local events, ranging from zoning issues and parking restrictions to neighborhood art walks and new building permits.
