A Letter from our President- Ray Blankenberg

As our neighborhood continues to grow, so does the strength of the neighbors. It was very evident when disaster struck and a tornado devastated our golf course and part of our neighborhood. We are so thankful that there were no major injuries or worse. The out pour of the neighborhood to help, was overwhelming. I received numerous phone calls from concerned neighbors asking what can we do to help and the neighbors gathered to help any way they could.

For those of you new to our neighborhood, we welcome you. If you have not received a welcome packet from your area representative, please let us know. Although we do not have a mandatory HOA, we have a very strong voluntary HOA that we invite you to become part of. Many residents feel, if there is not a mandatory HOA there are no rules. I can assure you, that’s not the case. Code Enforcement is strong in Northern Hills and here are a few of the common Code Compliance issues that can result in citations.

1. Maintain lawns and weeds. Any lawn over a foot in height is subject to a citation.

2. Vehicles must be parked on approved surfaces and be maintained in operational condition. Vehicles parked on the street, must be parked in the direction of traffic.

3. All buildings and homes must be maintained and kept in condition as not to detract from the values of neighboring homes.

4. To report any violations please call 311. Your help and concern of the neighborhood is needed.

We also have a very strong COP (Citizens on Patrol) program that we invite you to become part of.

We have our SAFFE officer Joshua Crumley patrolling our neighborhood. Should you need to contact the SAFFE office the number is 210-207-5109. His email address is "".

We continue to enjoy a low crime neighborhood thanks to all of our COP volunteers and the watchful eyes of our neighbors. If you have any questions or need any assistance settling in your new neighborhood, please let us know.

Emergency Services

For all emergencies, please call 911. For non-emergencies, please call the department's non-emergency line.
Police Non Emergency Number 207-7273 (SAPD), Please report suspicious activity here.

  • Dear friends and neighbors,
    It is clear that many of us are being contacted by companies selling solar panels for your roof. Some companies are coming down from Austin to sell you these systems. Please do you diligence before buying from these companies. Sher your experience with others here. Let us all make informed decisions about solar power.
    City power utilities seem to act friendly to these systems but it hurts their profit and some say they plan to charge additional fees to homeowners with solar systems some time in the future.
    Any facts you can add are welcome here.
    The city is not interested in buying any power that you generate from solar cells on your roof.
    It is not likely that your insurance company will pay to remove and replace solar panels in order to replace your roof when damaged.

Attention Dog Walkers!

Please make sure you carry a plastic bag to pickup after your dog if you walk your dog in Northern Hills. No one likes having a "surprise" in their yard while playing, walking or mowing their grass.

Dog owners are required by law to pickup after their dog and keep their dog on a leash. Violation of Section 5-14 of the City Code could easily result in a fine up to $2,000.00 for an intentional violation.

Remember that some residents use video surveillance on their property so they will have video evidence of you allowing your dog to defecate on their property. All pets outside a confined area MUST be on a leash! This is for everyone's protection including the pet. Also, make sure you have current immunizations and a photo. For more information go to

Getting caught by witness or video can earn you a citation of up to $2,000.00!

Have a pool party at the Northern Hills Pool

The pool is available for parties on weekends even though school is open.
Gather your friends together and schedule a party. Swim and cook out.
Call the pool phone at 655-0681, or e-mail the Pool Secretary at "debraroyder at" (Private party rates apply)

Help stop Handbills and Flyers on your doorstep - Place a "NO SOLICITING" sign on your door.

This will make the neighborhood cleaner, safer and likely increase advertising in the newsletter and on the neighborhood website
Please contact your SAFFE officer if you receive solicitations or phone 311.

Call 311 if you see "bandit" signs displayed in Northern Hills.

San Antonio has a Recycling Center!

Do you have an old computer, TV, or perhaps those foam packaging peanuts you would like to get rid of, but they don't go in your blue recycling can? Well now there is a place to recycle these items and others including prescription bottles and metals. In a 98,000 sq ft warehouse of I-35 near Splashtown, Logistix has opened a one stop recycling center, where you'll be able to drop off things the city won't take at the curb.

Their paper shredders actually grind the paper instead of slicing it into strips. This is more secure and they then turn it into tissue paper. Logistix accepts the electronics, recyclables and paper for shredding from the public free of charge, and in some cases pay for it.

They will have a drop off area for the public to come and drop off their items. The Logistix Recycling center opened in November. You can find it at 1949 Hormel Drive. If you have any questions, call them at 210.732.5246 or check

Helpful information about recycling - Remember to "Bag in Brown, Recycle in Blue, It's Easy to do."

Avoid placing diapers and other garbage in the blue recycle container. Fines are being assessed thru random curb checks.
Yes to plastic bottles, but not the bottle caps,
Yes to paper drink cups and plastic lids, but not plastic straws,
Yes to paper and cardboard but not packing material, popcorn or peanuts used for packing,
Yes to newspapers, but not waxed paper or wax coated packaging, wax covered drink cups or snack chip bags.,
Yes to steel and aluminum cans but not steel coat hangers, batteries, electronic gadgets or paint in cans.
Yes to glass bottles and jars, but not to plastic shopping bags from grocery stores (return bags to store).

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 has learned that the Environmental Impact Study (EIS) proposed the Airport still include 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.
