About us

Residents’ Association Meerhoven is for all local people residing in the district Meerhoven, which is part of the city quarter Meerhoven. We strive for a safe and pleasant living environment. In order to achieve this, we focus on advocacy and stimulate social activities.

Social activities
We encourage social activities by providing materials and subsidies to residents that like to initiate such activities. We also assist in the organization of activities, for example by arranging volunteers or offering help with the application of a license. In addition to street activities, we support Meerhoven-wide activities for young and old, such as the arrival of Sinterklaas, the Children’s Holiday Week and the Meerhoven International Platform.

Advocacy
We regularly meet with the municipality, the police and other city and non-profit agencies to discuss neigbourhood issues such as parking, traffic, safety, youth, district heating and the shopping center. We also maintain close contacts with several local and national organizations. As such, we are an effective force in making a stronger neighbourhood.
