The second Neighborhood Watch meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 9 at St. Mark’s Church. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM and should last about one hour.

We invite all Barton Hills and Zilker residents to attend. We also hope you will share this invitation with your neighbors who may not be receiving information via the listserve as we will be sharing information to help reduce criminal activity within our neighborhood and we would like all residents to attend.

The general agenda for the meeting will consist of the following topics:

  • Orientation to Neighborhood Watch; what it is and what it is not.
  • Meeting your neighbors who share a common interest and concern or the safety and well being of our neighborhood.
  • How working with adjacent neighborhoods in crime prevention programs makes us all more secure.
  • Information about techniques for observation and reporting of suspicious persons or vehicles.
  • Question and answers related to home security; things you can do yourself at low cost.

Our last Neighborhood Watch meeting was very popular with over 80 people attending. The February 9 meeting is in response to requests for additional information on crime and safety within our neighborhoods.

Come and bring a neighbor. Be part of the solution. You will be amazed at what neighbors looking out for neighbors can do.

I Hope To See You There,
John Luther, Chair

Hi Neighbors,

We’ve had some questions about getting onto the neighborhood listserve. It is a two-step process.

1.  You must become a member of the association and pay your $10 dues. You can do this in two ways.

  • a. Join online at You can use the paypal link on the right-hand side. If you don’t have a paypal account, it’s pretty easy to set one up.
  • b. Join by mail at Print out the form and send it to the address on the form. There is a place to check whether or not you want to join the listserve on this form. If you check the box, you will be added automatically.

2. Once you are a member (remember this listserve is a privilege of membership.) Visit and click on the link that says to send a message to our membership coordinator/Vice President Penley McQueen. He will approve listserve ownership after verifying that you are a member.

You can also renew at the next neighborhood meeting, which is on January 26th at 7 p.m. or by cutting out the form that is in every newsletter and distributed to 1200 households in our neighborhood every quarter and mailing it to the address on the form.

If you have applied and would like to join but still haven’t heard anything, you can let Penley McQueen know. But please be patient. We are a completely volunteer-run organization.

Speaking of which, MEMBERSHIPS ARE DUE. They renew annually in January. Although the crime is terrible, it is nice to see a little uptick in membership because of it.  One of the association’s big goals this year is to increase membership in the association and the number of people on the listserve.
