Join COPNA

Central Oak Park Neighborhood Association (COPNA) is a voluntary membership association for all residents of Central Oak Park. As stated in our Bylaws, the goal of COPNA is to: promote a sense of community for our neighborhood; forge working relationships with the City of Saint Petersburg; foster civic participation; promote beautification and pride in the neighborhood; maintain, enhance and encourage quality housing that reinforces the character and charm of our neighborhood and provide a focal point for all neighborhood issues that affect a significant number of our residents.

Why should you join COPNA and be involved?

  • Opportunity to learn about and discuss issues affecting our neighborhood such as community resources, crime information, transportation, planning, zoning and variances.
  • Meet and network with your neighbors (Need a babysitter? Who trims your trees? Can you watch my house while I'm away?).
  • Attend social events (porch parties, December holiday event, neighborhood clean ups).
  • COPNA represents you to the City and elected officials, and the City listens to a strong neighborhood association. The strength of the association is in numbers.
  • Ability to vote at meetings and serve on committees and/or the Board of Directors.
  • Communicate your concerns or ideas to the neighborhood (speak at a meeting, serve on a committee).
  • Give back to your community. COPNA participates in charitable events such as Carefest which helps neighbors in need of having work done to their homes.
  • Contribute to our neighborhood pride!
Join COPNA to support your neighborhood, to be informed and to participate.
