Who is DHCA?

DISSTON HEIGHTS CIVIC ASSOCIATION​​​

We are always looking for new residential and business members who want to build a community, have fun ... and, when necessary, solve problems.  Please come and join DHCA!  We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming DHCA meeting, social or event!!


Disston Heights Civic Association is the largest neighborhood association in St. Petersburg representing 8,200+ homes and 20,000+ residents.  DHCA is also the oldest formally organized neighborhood association officially recognized by the city of St. Petersburg.


DHCA was formed on May 31, 1955 as a way for its residents and businesses to come together and share their needs, ideas, issues and concerns about their neighborhood.  It continues today as a place for residents and businesses to engage and get involved with the community, socialize with your neighbors, meet city representatives, local politicians and neighborhood businesses.
