The Hollis Preservation Association

 

Our voice is not being heard!  Please, Stop destroying our beautiful historic homes!  We want to reconnect with our neighbors and discover all the good works that is  going on in our community.

A house being demolished right in the heart of the neighbourhood without prior notice to residents or environmental safeguards prompted the community to organize to ensure that their voice will be heard.  This fervent coming together of concerned residents was the foundation for the formation of the Hollis Preservation Association (HPA).

HPA Mission Statement

The Mission of the Hollis Preservation Association is to: ➀ enhance, preserve, and advocate for the aesthetic character, sense of community, and quality of life within the neighborhood of Hollis; ➁ encourage community members to take pride and invest in the development of their neighborhood by working together to maintain the upkeep of our community; ➂ act together to preserve historical resources; and ➃ educate and inform the community and the public at large about the rich history and ongoing vitality of Hollis.

HPA has made tremendous outreach into the community and has sparked dialogue with elected officials on all governmental levels -- even reaching as far as the Office of the First Deputy Mayor of New York -- to address the concerns of the residents of Hollis. First Deputy Mayor Lorraine Grillo enthusiastically extended the Mayor's Office support of HPA's Landmark Initiative. Councilwoman Nantansha Williams heard the community's concerns and also offered her support.

HPA has launched a petition ...

HPA came together very quickly, a rapid response to the unkindness that has been inflicted upon the Hollis community. This a beautiful neighborhood, one that I admired from a distance before moving here. It is chock full of history, not just from the houses alone, but there are so many stories yet to be told by longtime residents. Kudos HPA!
