The Stuart Area Restoration Association
In 1973, The Stuart Area Restoration Association (SARA), also called the Stuart Neighborhood Association, was officially formed (although functioning informally for years prior) by residents aiming to preserve the unique heritage of their neighborhood.
Today, SARA is a registered nonprofit organization. It's still run by resident volunteers who act as a resource for information and connectivity among the people who live here.
SARA works to preserve our historic neighborhood and improve the quality of residential life through mutual cooperation and involvement.
What We Do
We connect residents to resources and each other and work to make Stuart a safer, more beautiful place to live. Key activities include:
Organizing social gatherings and charitable events
Keeping public safety officials apprised of issues and priorities in the neighborhood
Publishing neighborhood e-newsletters
Offering accessible online resources
Performing periodic surveys to help us better know and serve our neighbors
Advocating for the neighborhood in local government
