NPA is a grassroots organization of committed local citizens who contibute their time and talent to make Noblesville a better place.  

We need your help. NPA is only successful when its membership is involved, engaged, and enthusiastic.

Please help us by joining a committee. We offer many opportunities. Volunteers do the work on our annual Historic Home Tour, judge our Garden Contest and our Facade Grant program.
