Friends of Austin Neighborhoods

Our Goals

Everyone lives in a neighborhood.


We believe our neighborhoods should be inclusive and friendly, welcome new residents from all socioeconomic backgrounds, and offer a diverse, abundant, and affordable choice of housing options.


We embrace opportunities for neighborhood and citywide improvement over protectionism and the unsustainable status quo.


Through online voting and open and transparent discussion, we encourage participation by the full diversity of neighborhood stakeholders.

Everyone lives in a neighborhood.
Welcoming all of the diverse voices in Austin

We’re the voice of inclusive neighborhoods in Austin, welcoming abundant and diverse housing and residents of all socio-economic backgrounds. Recognizing that we all live in neighborhoods, we strive to provide broader and more effective neighborhood representation for the people of Austin.

We welcome everyone as members. Your neighborhood association can become a member, and we also welcome individual members. We can even help you create a new neighborhood association in your neighborhood. All we ask is that you enthusiastically support the FAN vision.

Members of FAN work with each other to share ideas and best practices for improving neighborhoods, keep themselves informed about city policies, take positions to influence policies that affect our neighborhoods, and organize social events that all members can enjoy.
