Founded in 1970, the Frogtown Neighborhood Association (District 7) was originally named, and is still legally, the Thomas-Dale District 7 Planning Council. 

We are a small, not-for-profit, community-based organization serving the neighborhoods of East Midway, Frogtown, Capitol Heights, and Mt. Airy. Our efforts are focused on civic engagement and resident empowerment. We function as a neighborhood-level point of contact regarding various city processes, as well as for addressing issues identified by community residents and/or businesses. Our funding comes from contracts for service, foundation grants, and individual and corporate donations.

The mission of the Frogtown Neighborhood Association (District 7) is to strive to conserve, foster and restore the well being of our neighborhoods through the promotion of positive solutions to community issues which affect the health and safety, physical environment, and economic resources of its residents, area workers, and property owners. This is achieved through collaboration and shared responsibility with other member organizations of the community.

You are a member of the Frogtown Neighborhood Association (District 7) if you live, work, or own property within our boundaries: Lexington Avenue on the West, Burlington Northern Railroad on the North, Highway 35E on the East, and University Avenue on the South.

Membership is free and automatically recognized. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas, feel free to contact us.
