Welcome to the Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association website

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.


» Security Program Membership

The PHNA Security Program is a privately funded program serving the Pemberton Heights neighborhood. The program provides up to 20 hours per week of uniformed security officer patrols and up to 40 hours during times of high risk and when a large number of neighbors are out of the neighborhood such as Christmas, Spring Break, August, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years.

The Patrol Officers are from private security firm, Sentry, and they patrol subject to specific Patrol Orders which task them to patrol the entire neighborhood, check the homes on the Away From Home List and then position themselves at ingress and egress points and observe traffic into and out of the neighborhood. The officers patrol the neighborhood in marked security patrol vehicles from Sentry.

At all times, the Patrol Officers are in contact with APD Dispatch to ensure timely response to incidents of all kinds.

» Carriage Rides: December 14

December 14, 2014 5:30pm - 9pm

Every year the Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association (PHNA) organizes carriage rides around the neighborhood for its residents. This year the carriage rides will be hosted by Nikki & Hank Faulkner and Laura & Kyndel Bennett on Westover & Harris on Sunday December 14, 2014 between 5:30pm and 9:00pm. The cost per carriage will be $90 for a 20minute ride.

To reserve a carriage, you must sign up at the picnic which will be held on Sunday, October 26, 2014 and pay (check and cash only please). Reservations will be on a first come first served basis and this usually sells out quickly. However we will take names for a waiting list should a reservation open up later.

Each carriage will accommodate up to 6 adults/older children with toddlers/babies held on laps. To help share the fun and allow as many neighbors to participate, please consider sharing your carriage and cost IF there is extra space with a friend. We have added an extra carriage and horse this year for a total of 9 carriages.

Please let me know if you will volunteer to bring goodies...

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer.

Until the last week of June, it had been a very quiet month in Pemberton. The following crimes, however, were reported in June by APD.

  • June 23rd, Bulglary of Residence at the 2400 Block of Hartford. (Daytime)
  • June 29th, reported theft at the 2400 Block of Hartford. (Daytime)

To date, there have been no reported crimes for the Month of July.

I have also attached the report of our security patrol from June 29th. As you can see from this report, the security patrol located a suspicious jeep wrangler that was circling the neighborhood. When the security patrol pulled up behind the vehicle, it quickly left but they were unable to get the license plate number. During the summer months this has happened more regularly.

I have been asked if we can shift some nighttime patrols to the daytime hours. Unfortunately, given the size of our account, this is...
