Established in May of 1995, the Carmichael Colony Neighborhood Association (“CCNA” bylaws) is an apolitical 501(c)(4) organization that represents hundreds of landowners, businesses, and residents (including those who rent, those who are homeless, and homeowners alike) within its boundaries. The CCNA is a volunteer-led association composed of your Carmichael Colony neighbors. We’re focused on improving quality of life for all, retaining the unique character of this corner of Carmichael, and protecting wildlife and the environment. We are officially recognized by the County of Sacramento and its Board of Supervisors as a credible and positive community organization.
The boundaries of the CCNA are Stanley Avenue on the north, the east side of Fair Oaks Boulevard on the west, Oak Avenue on the South, and the American River on the east; also including those side streets contiguous to Stanley and Oak Avenues as well as the development known as Riverwood.
The CCNA is actively involved in community-wide actions in Carmichael including:
- Abating crime:
- Working with the Sheriff’s Department in coordinated crime prevention and abatement including establishing neighborhood watch programs
- Donating surveillance cameras to members in need
