Pemberton Heights is a unique subdivision centrally located in Austin. In its June 1998 issue, Town & Country magazine named Pemberton Heights as one of the 25 Platinum Addresses in the United States.
In 2007, the American Planning Association listed Pemberton Heights (along with the other neighborhoods Old West Austin) as one of its “great places” neighborhoods.
Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association (“PHNA”) works in active participation with the residents of Pemberton Heights to: enhance, protect and preserve the prestige, quality and character of the neighborhood; build a sense of community among its diverse members; and, develop and implement goals designed to promote mutual interests of the residents of Pemberton Heights.
PEMBERTON HEIGHTS SECURITY PROGRAM
Through the voluntary contributions of its residents, Pemberton Heights employs a private security company as a deterrence against property crime and vandalism. Uniformed patrollers in clearly-marked vehicles canvas the neighborhood 20 hours per week in four-hour shifts, the particular days and times selected at random each week. Security patrols discourage criminal behavior by providing potential thieves and burglars with a visible presence of authority and vigilance.
Patrollers may stop their cars to greet, question, and ID individuals seen out during the late night or early morning hours, and will contact the police should they notice anything of concern. No weapons are allowed, each driver is monitored by GPS tracking, and all cars are company owned and insured. At the end of every shift, an electronic report is sent to the head of the PHNA Security Committee. Supporters of the program also benefit from an “Away From Home” service that furnishes extra attention to the homes of vacationing residents.
