Annual dues for the L Streets Neighborhood Association, Inc. (L Streets NA) are $20 per household. Membership application may be made at any time and dues may be paid at any time — each cover one calendar year from each January 1 to December 31. Renewals are due by each January 31. Membership will automatically terminate at the end of each calendar year. Dues payment supports our activities and entitles your household to a single vote when a matter is put before the L Streets NA for a vote.
Operating funds are necessary for the L Streets NA, but we don't want annual dues to prevent your participation. The option to join as a Non-Voting Member is available to you at no cost.
It's easy to join or renew as a Voting or Non-Voting Member by using our Online Membership Application. You may pay annual dues using PayPal or by mailing a check or money order.

If you don't want to be a voting member or contribute voluntary dues toward our efforts, we ask you to at least become a non-voting member for free. That way we can add your household to our member database and contact you with News and Events and Crime Watch information. Both the Online Membership Application and the printable Membership Application available at our Documents page have ways that you can become a non-voting member.
The success of the L Streets NA depends on volunteers, so do what you can to get active. There are ways to share your talents that don't require a large time commitment. Some things don't even really take time out of your schedule. The most important thing you can do is to get to know your neighbors that live close to you and share contact info. See our News and Events page for ways get info from us.
Everyone can participate in L Streets Crime Watch. Suspicious or criminal activity should be reported by calling 9-1-1 as soon as you are able. Anything that seems slightly "out of place" or is happening at an unusual time of day might be criminal activity. Don't worry that you're bothering the police or about being embarrassed if your suspicions prove to be unfounded. Think about what might happen to people or property if you don't act.
Get to know your front door, back door, and both side neighbors better by sharing contact info. It's not "being nosy" to be familiar with your neighbors' habits and vehicles — instead, it alerts you when something is out of the ordinary. Our Crime Watch page has info on how you can make your home, the L Streets, and Dallas a safer place to live!
Block Captains help by distributing flyers to households on their block for major events or news, encouraging their neighbors to join the L Streets NA, talking up our Crime Watch activities, and greeting new residents. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
If you forgot to close your garage door or your kids left their bicycles out, chances are you've received a phone call from our Volunteers in Patrol. These folks are trained volunteers who are extra eyes and ears for the Dallas Police. When the bad guys know that people are watching, they usually go away and don't want to come back.
If you want to take your Crime Watch knowledge to the next level all you need to do is apply for and complete the four-hour V.I.P. training offered by the Dallas Police Department. Visit our Crime Watch page for more information on becoming a VIP.
National Night Out is the annual community-building campaign organized by the National Association of Town Watch that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, and exhibits. Each year on the first Tuesday of October the L Streets NA joins other communities across Texas for National Night Out. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy, and determination it takes to help make our neighborhood a safer place for the next 364 days. Contact email@example.com to help with organizing and running National Night Out.
A huge annual celebration with organized fun, a great chance to meet your neighbors from all over the L Streets, information tables, prize drawings, and (of course) FOOD. This is a fun social event with great activities for kids and even pets. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help with organizing and running the Neighborhood Block Party.
We also have groups that plan Events, run a Yard of the Month contest, and greet new residents as our New Neighbor Welcome committee. Contact email@example.com to get started.
