About the Neighborhood

Scroll down to view our by-laws, officers, and meeting minutes.

One of the city's oldest neighborhoods dating back to the 1950's, Bel-Air is the size of a small town, enclosed between Carlisle and San Mateo, Candelaria and Menaul.

The neighborhood contains frame and stucco homes, others of cinder block construction, and many others are custom built or refurbished original designs.

Bel-Air is laid out in a grid pattern with back alley-ways which give access to large backyards. It is a highly liveable area.
