Have You Joined, or Renewed, Your SANA Membership for 2024?
If you live within our neighborhood, we hope you are a current 2024 member of the Singing Arrow Neighborhood Association (SANA), to become informed and hopefully involved in getting to know your neighbors and improving our neighborhood.  Only current SANA members will be entitled to vote for new Directors at our Annual Meetings, and to receive important neighborhood information via email.  It's FREE and EASY to join!
If you were a member in 2023, please renew your membership for 2024 by sending an email to: abqsana@gmail.com and request that your membership be renewed for 2024.
If you are not a current member, please consider joining SANA as soon as possible.  Send an email to abqsana@gmail.com, and we will email a membership form to you.
SANA membership benefits you and our neighborhood!  SANA offers opportunities for neighbors to:
  • get to know each other,
  • promote community welfare,
  • support local businesses, and
  • improve community appearance and quality of life.
Additionally, Albuquerque law requires that SANA be notified in writing by city government and developers concerning proposed housing or business developments, zoning changes, land use flood plain and other environmental / conservation issues that could impact our community.  SANA shares these proposals with our members and when possible, arranges for neighborhood meetings with proponents of such developments, to exchange information and to voice our support or opposition.  SANA's position may be taken into consideration when such proposals are considered for approval.
Please call us at 505/675-0479 or email us at abqsana@gmail.com if you have any questions.
