About AHIA


It all started in 1923!


When Getty Oil, horse head pumping jacks, and oil derricks dotted the Alamitos Heights landscape 35 Alamitos Heights neighbors formed the Alamitos Heights Improvement Association. Today AHIA is organized as a 501 (c) 4 nonprofit organization.


It doesn't get done without you!


We are a neighborhood organization of volunteers focused on Building Community Together. This begins with social events focused on building relationships and communication between neighbors.


Thank You

Your membership matters. Your dues and donations support our events. Volunteering your time and recruiting your neighbors to join is important. Many hands make light work. We can't accomplish our goals without the help of members like you.

A Bit of History & What AHIA Does


Alamitos Heights Improvement Association 

The Alamitos Heights Improvement Association is a volunteer organization made up of homeowners and residents dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life in our neighborhood. Alamitos Heights is a beautiful, safe, friendly, and well-established neighborhood with a strong sense of community. This association was formed by the residents to provide leadership, resources, and a common voice to assure that Alamitos Heights continues to be a great place to live. 

AHIA is a voluntary organization that exists to promote, develop, and protect the interests and welfare of the property owners and residents of Alamitos Heights while fostering community spirit, maintaining the quality of the neighborhood, and engaging in activities of civic and public benefit.  

There are no covenants, conditions, or restrictions, and the Association does not own any common areas. Membership is open to all residents of Alamitos Heights. 

What Your Membership Supports

AHIA benefits the residents of Alamitos Heights in many ways. The Association acts as a forum for two-way communication between our residents and our city government. AHIA meets with our 3rd district councilperson, as well as local police, fire and safety personnel. Information on issues affecting our neighborhood is passed on to residents through our newsletter, website and community meetings. Feedback, comments, and requests from our neighborhood are fed back up to our city officials.

 AHIA sponsors social events for the entire neighborhood. Our annual meeting doubles as a picnic in June. The picnic brings out many members and it is a great way to meet more of our neighbors.

AHIA sponsors the Colorado Lagoon Christmas Trees and a Tree Lighting ceremony that is fun for everyone. 

AHIA publishes our newsletter containing articles written by your neighbors and we maintain this website to promote communication between neighbors.  

AHIA supports tree planting and traffic signals, neighborhood safety with community watch and National Night Out, and sidewalk and street repair and we look for new ways to make Alamitos Heights an even better neighborhood to live in.
