Welcome to the Dolores Heights Improvement Club (“DHIC”)!

The Dolores Heights Improvement Club is a volunteer residential neighborhood association. We come together in the interest of the community to maintain and enhance its appearance, safety, communication, and value. Our meeting schedule is posted here.


Membership is open to all persons owning property or residing within the area approximately bounded by the following four streets: Castro, 18th Street, Dolores Street and 22nd Street. These boundaries include the buildings on both sides of these boundary streets. For specific details, see the DHIC detailed map.

To join the DHIC, please print out the membership application, fill it out, and mail it in.

Online Discussion Groups

We have a members-only mailing list about neighborhood issues which is open to any member owning property, or residing within, the DHIC boundaries. Each participant in the discussion group will be asked provide a name, address and phone number before being added to the group. Addition to the group can be requested via email to: info@doloresheights.org, or in person at one of our meetings.

There is also a Google group mailing list (“dolores-heights”) open to anyone interested in the Dolores Heights area, regardless of where they live, or their membership in the DHIC. This Google group list is not operated by the DHIC, but as a convenience, you can find the link to join here.

Online Discussion Group Guidelines

The Dolores Heights online discussion group welcomes your comments on neighborhood issues. We believe that civil online conversations are most enjoyable, thought-provoking, and encourage more neighbors to engage in the discussions. Please refrain from profanity, obscenity, spam, name-calling or attacking others for their views.
We do not monitor each and every posting before it is posted, but we reserve the right to delete comments that violate these guidelines. Let’s keep our online neighborhood respectful and fun!
