The Fairmount Park Neighborhood Association was formed in 2007 by a couple of neighborhood residents whose primary quest was to "get to know" our neighbors. We wanted to establish a sense of community within our community and focus on helping others and neighborhood beautification. Our neighborhood includes the Park/Glen Historic District and borders the Historic 100 Block in Council Bluffs, Iowa
We award the "Yard of the Month" from May to September and name the winner of our exterior holiday decorating contest each December; the winner's name and address is added to the traveling plaque. Each December, we also award the FPNA "Person of the Year".
The FPNA garage sale and its ever-popular bake sale are held bi-annually.
