Here’s what the SCA does and uses dues for:

  • moderate/upkeep the neighborhood listserv (helps you find a lost pet, helps you find a good plumber, helps you find someone to shovel your sidewalk, helps you find a babysitter, community news)
  • maintaining the beauty of the entrance islands and traffic circles throughout our neighborhood
  • organize the annual Halloween Party
  • organize the annual Block Party
  • maintain the SCA web site which provides useful, local information
  • maintain the neighborhood directory: a contact list of Sumner residents -- often this helps one neighbor contact another (for example, you go on vacation and you would like to ask a neighbor to take in your mail, packages, and newspaper)
  • The SCA works to capture information about government activities of interest to our neighborhood and get information out to residents to help them participate in government decision-making (this includes cut-through traffic, Westbard development, parks and conservation, and airplane noise).
