HANA represents residents and business owners in Downtown and Central Arlington. It aims to build strong neighborhoods and to facilitate communication with city hall and the university of Texas at Arlington. about issues affecting residents and businesses..
HANA's members are neighbors who have voluntarily come together to preserve, protect, and enhance the quality of life in our neighborhoods. All residents are welcome.
The Heart of Arlington Neighborhood Association is a coalition of neighborhoods located immediately south of downtown Arlington and extending south to Pioneer Parkway. HANA’s boundaries were established by Arlington City Ordinance No. 13-016 as Collins Street, Cooper Street, Pioneer Parkway, Border Street and its extension, UTA Blvd.
Within our boundaries are single-family homes, duplexes, townhomes, student housing, housing for elderly people, churches, schools, commercial structures, parks, and creeks. HANA includes some of Arlington’s oldest residential areas and buildings, especially on Center Street and First Street, as well as a substantial number of houses built in the middle of the twentieth century. Our area is marked by “sign toppers” on the street sign posts throughout out the area.
Since activities and developments immediately beyond our physical boundaries can significantly impact our neighborhoods and living conditions, our area of interest extends beyond our boundaries for a block or two in each direction.
