The Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association (PHNA) works to benefit all 640 households in our community.
The Association is a membership organization of neighbors who reside in Pemberton Heights and work together on issues of shared interest such as neighborhood safety and beautification and carry out social and other events that create community. This is accomplished through participation, education, communication and action.

It’s time to be thinking of the annual Holiday Carriage Rides through Pemberton Heights! Don’t miss out on a chance to mingle with neighbors over hot chocolate and cookies while getting in the holiday spirit with horse drawn carriages, holiday lights and good cheer.
This year, the PHNA has secured 8 horse-drawn carriages. 56 carriage ride spots will be made available for sale at the Picnic. Each carriage ride holds 4 adults. Small children and babies can be held on laps. Be sure to check the weather in advance of the carriage ride and dress accordingly. Residents often bring a blanket to use during the carriage rides.
December 4, 2016 from 5:00-9:00pm
Please arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled carriage ride to ensure we stay on schedule.

Currently, PHNA interfaces with the city and administers the Security Program. It also helps fund social events such as the Annual Picnic, neighborhood garage sales and the annual holiday carriage rides. PHNA has supported the work of the Shoal Creek Conservancy, the PH Triangles, and Pease Park Conservancy.
Membership is voluntary and typically in any year, about 30 percent of residents pay dues. And an additional number of residents contribute to the neighborhood Security Program.
Although isolated by the absence of thoroughfares, Pemberton doesn’t quite suffer the traffic, parking or noise problems of other central Austin districts. Yet, as the Austin core continues to develop, residents increasingly will see the need to collaborate as they address issues related to urban growth.
The City of Austin and Travis County are growing up around Pemberton Heights. As residents, we feel and will continue to feel the impact of this increasing development and urbanizationamenities of this community.
Over the years, a number of important matters have been effectively addressed by the PHNA. For example, PHNA leadership started the “triangle” beautification project. It was the PHNA board that coordinated with Keep Austin Beautiful so residents could receive a tax deduction for donations.
A well-supported neighborhood association provides Pemberton residents with a network through which neighbors can work together to enhance the neighborhood in a collaborative way.
