About Us


Mission Statement

The San Rafael Neighborhoods Association’s mission is to enhance and maintain the character and quality of all San Rafael neighborhoods through advocacy and an activated community.

About Us

The San Rafael Neighborhoods Association was founded by local residents in Southwest Pasadena who believed that the voices of our neighborhood needed to be heard more strongly and clearly. The abrupt closure of Fire Station 39 in West Pasadena in April 2011, without forewarning or fire safety replacement plans in place finally, activated the community to action. Over 600 residents in the San Rafael neighborhoods not only signed the petition to protest the Fire Station closure, which was subsequently presented to the Pasadena City Council ,  but they let community leaders know they were not happy with the status quo. They shared their concerns about the numerous issues facing our neighborhoods from public and fire  safety to streets and sidewalks in need of repair.
