Who is CONA?

CONA (Council of Neighborhood Associations) is an umbrella organization representing Monroe County’s neighborhood associations. We formulate positions on public policy and represent our neighborhoods at city, county and state government meetings.

CONA exists to:

  • Foster a sense of community in city and county neighborhoods
  • Promote neighborhood preservation and advocate for appropriate land use
  • Support and empower neighborhoods for effective community action
  • Maintain and improve the quality of life
  • Encourage the formation of new neighborhoods in our community
  • Enhance communication and cooperation between neighborhood organizations
  • Provide a forum where neighborhood organizations can discuss specific concerns.

We envision a government which respects the non-fiscal attributes of our community, which include our natural resources, green space, trees and other elements of the physical environment which enhance our overall quality of life.


Chair: John Kennedy
Vice Chair: Tom Shafer
Secretary: Jan Sorby
Treasurer: Elizabeth Cox-Ash
Members at Large: Donald Granbois, Jon Lawrence, Becky Holtzman
