Our Organization

About the NHPA and our Board


The North Hill Preservation Association (NHPA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to protect, preserve, and restore the history, unique architecture, and landscape of the North Hill Preservation District; foster a sense of community among North Hill residents; and encourage a broader relationship with other Pensacola communities.

NHPA Board

The all-volunteer, twelve-member Board is tasked with meeting and promoting the organization’s mission. Although the Board does not address code enforcement issues or neighbor disputes, the Board may advocate on behalf of the neighborhood to the local governments in the event of improper zoning, improper permitting, or safety concerns. We ask that residents contact the City directly or through Pensacola 311 to report any concerns related to the parks, streets, streetlights, or sidewalks.

Board members serve 3-year terms, with four Board members’ terms expiring each year. Nominees are submitted to the Nominations Committee each April to fill the open Board positions. The Board then prepares a slate of four (or more, if needed) nominees to be presented and approved at the annual membership dinner meeting in June.
The Board convenes 10 times a year (each month except August and December), while committees meet as needed. Current members can attend Board meetings as an observer. Members and guests can address the Board during the Open Forum at the beginning of each meeting (request time in advance by contacting the NHPA President). Board meeting dates, times, and locations are subject to change–contact NHPA President for details/current information.
