The Alamitos Heights Improvement Association (AHIA) is a community organization founded in 1923 by 35 Alamitos Heights neighbors.
The AHIA provides and promotes programs, services, and activities aimed at encouraging connections between neighbors and fostering civic involvement in our community.
New to the Neighborhood? Well, welcome!
The Alamitos Heights Improvement Association has a long-standing tradition of delivering 'Welcome Bags' to new residents of the neighborhood (owners and renters alike). We obtain this information from our resident realtors upon close of escrow and upon news from other area residents that we have a new neighbor. Included in these bags is information about the Association, Long Beach City services and contact numbers, and various coupons to local businesses and restaurants, including our local Farmers' Market.
If you are new to the area and have not yet received your Welcome Bag, please let us know by contacting the AHIA president at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in becoming a member of AHIA, please print and complete the form below and mail in to the address listed on the form.
Snow-play from 4-7:30 pm and tree lighting, carolers, and Santa
from 6-7:30 pm.
Snow in Alamitos Heights? Yes, Virginia, there will be snow! Since our traditional holiday tree lighting ceremony will move to a new location this year due to the ongoing construction at Colorado Lagoon we're celebrating old-school. Instead of lighting the trees on the lagoon, we will symbolically light a tree in Alamitos Heights Park (corner of Colorado & Orlena) to ring in the holiday season including a 50-foot snow covered hill. Sleds will be provided, so come early for some old-fashioned fun!
Our event will still have the traditional photos with Santa, cookies and hot cocoa. Special treats this year will include caroling by the Wilson High School choir. We also ask that you bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate in support of the Long Beach Fire Department’s Spark-of-Love toy drive; this will be a nice thank you to the fire crew who delivers Santa in the fire truck.
