Communication Linkage Forum

Mission Statement:

The Communication Linkage Forum strives to promote positive leadership, community participation, unity and pride in all neighborhoods by improving the quality of life in Santa Ana "block-by-block". Our community has 64 recognized neighborhoods as illustrated on the attached map.

The Communication Linkage Forum ("Com-Link") was formed in July 1989, for the purpose of providing a non-partisan forum to promote the exchange of ideas and information between neighborhoods and community leaders. Com-Link partners with the City of Santa Ana in order to communicate the positive aspects of Santa Ana and to enhance a sense of community. Com-Link, originally comprised of five neighborhood associations, now represents over 60 Santa Ana neighborhood associations. The most valuable aspect of Com-Link is that it allows many sides of an issue to be expressed. Com-Link also provides a networking forum for community leaders to develop contacts in order to address issues that need to be taken beyond the forum, and acted upon by an individual or by neighborhoods.

Com-Link members are encouraged to become more involved with community issues and to join community service organizations.

Join us at an upcoming meeting. Everyone is welcome to the Com-Link General Meetings. Courtesy is emphasized throughout our proceedings to insure that people are considered more important than a specific issue. Com-Link's commitment to civility is..."As issues come and go, the people will remain and not the reverse." The Communication Linkage Forum strives to promote positive leadership, community participation, unity and pride in all neighborhoods by improving the quality of life in Santa Ana, "block-by-block."
