Why does the association exist, and why should you join? Why serve on the board?
The Camelot 1 Neighborhood Association was formed and incorporated by the State of Texas in 1989 for several reasons, but namely after concerns arose over the possible development of the large vacant tracts of land to the west and south. The association was able to secure a Land Use Agreement with the owners at that time, outlining several types of developments which were not to occur on the land. In 2014 these tracts were purchased by a new owner and the association was able to further strengthen the terms of the agreement. This was a long process undertaken by the association as yet another way to provide a positive environment in which to work, play, raise our children or retire.
Your C1NA helps by keeping the City of San Antonio active in the policing of our neighborhood. We accomplish this via ongoing communication between the C1NA board and SAPD.
C1NA regularly communicates with City agencies regarding trash, street lighting, animal control, home maintenance, potholes, street maintenance and more. In fact, the City has often praised us as an association for of our diligent efforts. We do this to benefit the quality of life for every Camelot 1 resident. Being a member of the board can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience. When you know you have made a positive contribution to your community by serving, the feeling of satisfaction is well-deserved.
Please read the association’s quarterly newsletter on this site or on Nextdoor.com. Formerly this newsletter was delivered to each residence by a block captain. This meant printing nearly 1,000 copies and hand-delivering each. This proved expensive, time-consuming, and unsustainable. We will continue to provide a printed copy to any member who does not have internet connectivity at their home.
Your C1NA exists and the board works to benefit and maintain the integrity of our Camelot 1 neighborhood. However, the Association costs money to operate. The association spends funds printing newsletters, postage, post office box rental, banking services, website development, refreshments for our quarterly meetings, a Christmas yard decorating contest and more. C1NA board members are unpaid volunteers who give their time for the betterment of Camelot 1.
At our quarterly meetings you will hear from our SAPD officer, Code Compliance officers and other guests such as the County Tax Assessor Mr. Albert Uresti. Our District 2 council member Mr. Art Hall may also appear and speak of the progress being made in the district.
The association works to provide safety, security and a family atmosphere in the Camelot 1 neighborhood. A commitment to serve on the Board should take less than three hours monthly of your time, with a priceless benefit of helping yourself and your family. The community needs your voice, your ideas and participation. Together we will succeed in making Camelot 1 a great place to live.
