COMMUNITY, Home and Garden

Get involved in your neighborhood

Your neighborhood needs you.

The Greater Gubser Neighborhood Association (GGNA) includes all neighbors and businesses within the Gubser Elementary School boundaries. 

Unlike a homeowner’s association (HOA) there is NO cost to you to be part of a neighborhood association. These associations play a key role in our community. 

They open the doors of communication between residents and the city government in order to provide key information about resources that are more relevant to your specific neighborhood. 

Our main purpose is to empower our neighbors and improve our community. 

We aim to encourage connections between neighbors and seek to increase involvement in our diverse community.

We are currently one of five neighborhood associations in the city of Keizer. 

The Gubser neighborhood is the location of the annual Miracle of Lights display.

What began as a friendly neighborhood holiday light competition has grown into a much anticipated annual event. 

We gather annually at Bob Newton Park for National Night Out on the first Tuesday of August. Our monthly meetings are open to all and held on the second Tuesday of the month. 

Meetings are held at the Keizer Civic Center, our city’s living room. 

Be sure to check our Facebook page to confirm meeting information.

Welcome to the latest updates from the Northwest Keizer Neighborhood Association. 

Our neighborhood is bustling with new activities that promise to enrich our lives and strengthen our bonds within this vibrant community. 

First on the docket, we are thrilled to announce the grand opening of the new Rec Grange community building. 

Located at the heart of our neighborhood, this building, which has a rich and vibrant history, has been renovated by Valor Mentoring and promises to be a hub of activity, offering food, coffee, mentoring, tutoring and hosting various community events for Keizer residents. 

In other exciting news, we are pleased to share that the Keizer City Council has approved the construction of a new crosswalk on Lockhaven Dr. N and McClure St. N by Keizer Elementary. 

Safety is our utmost concern and this addition will ensure pedestrians, especially children, can navigate our streets safely. 

We also extend a warm welcome to our new McNary High School principal, Scott Gragg. 

With his dedication to education and nurturing young minds, we are confident that principal Gragg will lead our school to greater heights of academic excellence and community engagement.
