Friends of Zilker Neighborhood

Our Goals

A free neighborhood association open to everyone


No membership dues ever. We want to be as open as possible and part of that is reducing barriers to membership and to voting.


Everyone in the neighborhood can join and be a part of the community. Renters, property owners, business owners, and homeowners can join. Everyone is welcome since we are all a part of the community. We are the only neighborhood group in Zilker that posts online our voting results, how we communicate voting results to the city council, posts our voter rolls online for independent verification, and allows everyone in Zilker to participate at any time.


Voting on local issues should be easy and everyone should be able to participate. We use a secure online voting system. Anyone in the neighborhood can sign up to vote at any time. We understand that people have busy lives and cant attend all meetings to vote on the issues that they care about. Allowing everyone to vote online allows more people to participate in their community and to better represent the views of everyone in Zilker.


Our monthly meetings are neighbor get-togethers instead of formal meetings. One of our main goals is to create a place where people can get to know their neighbors in person. We help neighbors that need help navigating permitting and variance requests at the city and help the community in any way that we can.
