YARD OF THE MONTH
Each month from April through August a "yard of the month" will be selected in each area by judges.
You can volunteer to be a judge. Judges are needed to select a yard each month and to notify the winner in each area.
Visit Contacts page for Area rep. contact info.

Our Northern Hills Yard of the Month (YOM) selection has been delayed until May. YOM Manager, Clare Coleman, explained that many of our yards were affected by the late freeze. This will give you another month to get your yard ready to be a YOM winner! Here are some things the judges are looking for:

  • CURBS - well maintained
  • MAILBOXES - upright, in good condition
  • DRIVEWAYS & SIDEWALKS - clean, litter free
  • LAWN - well maintained
  • SHRUBS, TREES, FLOWERBEDS - nice image overall
  • HOUSE FRONT - not needing repairs or painting
  • HOUSE NUMBERS - visible from the street
  • FENCE - upright, in good condition
  • PROPERTY - complies with San Antonio City Codes - (sanantonio.gov/dsd/codes)


  • If you missed the Northern Hills General Meeting, Rick Murta with Northern Hills Curb Appeal, gave us some good information about yard maintenance - now is the time to compost and fertilize - use Preen in flowerbeds and pre-emergent on the lawn - wait until the fall to trim oak trees.
    Did you notice the improvements?
    Many of our Northern Hills residents have most likely seen the excellent improvements going on at our main neighborhood entryway at Thousand Oaks and Scarsdale.
    Beautification Manager Ray Blankenberg asked that we give special recognition to volunteers Suzanne and Jessie Ong for their wonderful efforts including the re-lettering of the two giant stones on either side of the main entrance. Ray pointed out that their re-lettering work has made the neighborhood name Northern Hills really stand out.

    Thanks to all our volunteers like Suzanne and Jessie for helping keep our neighborhood looking great! Do you enjoy working with plants? Ray would love to have some help with the Northern Hills entrances. Contact Ray Blankenberg - rayblankenberg@gmail.com.

    Message about the new rules for Voting From Home

    Monday January 24, 2022
    The League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area needs your help. Alarming numbers of Vote by Mail applications requesting mail-in ballots are being rejected by local election offices throughout Texas, including in Bexar County, due to non-compliance with the stricter voting requirements enacted last year by the Texas Legislature.

    The most common reasons for rejection include the use of the incorrect (older) application and not meeting the state’s new identification requirements.
    Click here for League of Women Voters website
    Click here for information on the voting application for mail in votes
    Steps to voting by mail in Texas

    Please share this with your neighbors. Thank you.

    Our Website History

    This web site started as a means for opposing the SA Airport's FAR 150 update proposal that suggested that heavy air traffic be re-directed 15 degrees to fly "over the Cement Plant".     The only problem with that solution is that WE are on the other side of that Cement Plant. Although the FAA rejected that plan in 2001, in March of 2004 the Northern Hills Homeowner's Association had learned that the Environmental Impact Study (EIS) proposed the Airport still included the 15 degree turn. In February of 2005, we were notified that were successful getting the 15 degree turn removed from the EIS.



    All residents are strongly encouraged to join NHHA.
