Neighbors from Cherokee Hills first met in 2003 to plan social events and host informational meetings. Since then, neighborhood leaders have been building an email list to inform residents of meetings, safety topics, the annual summer ice cream social and other relevant neighborhood issues.

The group regularly meets with residents from the Glenwood Estates and Sylvan Grove neighborhoods.
