About the Alief Super Neighborhood

Origin of ASNC

During his administration, Mayor Lee Brown created 88 Super Neighborhoods in the City of Houston to encourage community involvement and solve problems at the community level. The Alief Super Neighborhood Council (ASNC) #25 was officially recognized on June 22, 2000. Since then, the ASNC has worked to improve many facets of our community to benefit ALL ALIEF RESIDENTS including residential areas, streets, lighting, security, parks, and youth programs.

Each super neighborhood represents a group of civic clubs, places of worship, businesses, and other institutions and community interests. These groups, working together, decide which improvements are needed. The Super Neighborhood program was made part of the City of Houston Code of Ordinances in 2003.

ASNC’s mission is to:

ASNC Input to Annual Capital Improvement Plan

Collectively, we discuss, prioritize and vote upon issues submitted by the community. We submit our “wish list” to the City at the annual Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) meeting which is held in each district. The City uses these lists in developing the CIP (a rolling five-year budget) and to allocate funding.

  • Alief Litter
    We've all seen people littering, not only in Alief but all over the City. Litter is ugly and it diminishes property values. If litter is not cleaned up, it leads to MORE litter. The International District pays thousands of dollars to fight litter. Let's take pride in our community -- don't trash
