HISTORY OF THE ASSOCIATION

The Terrell Heights Neighborhood Association has historically been operated by a small group of homeowners, people who want to make their community even better than it already is. In recent decades, the Association has grown consistently and steadily to be one of the most dynamic and productive neighborhood associations in San Antonio.

A neighborhood association existed since the founding of the neighborhood in the late 1940s in an on and off manner. A new Association was organized in 1996. Originally, the impetus was when Don and Jamie Siedel, Mark and Ann Deeds, Paul Hayden and KT Whitehead convened regarding traffic concerns in the neighborhood. They had heard the concerns of their neighbors regarding the increase in traffic and speed in the community. Following a traffic study, the small group raised $4,000 through yard sales and personal donations to have speed humps installed on Greenwich between Eisenhauer and Brees.

That effort proved that when neighbors join forces, they can get things done. A passion to get things done and prove Terrell Heights to be one of the most livable, creative, diverse, and desired neighborhoods in our city is what motivates the Association today. And, we’re successful in our mission.

Join us in creating the next exciting chapter in the history of Terrell Heights.
