Welcome to the largest and oldest neighborhood in St. Petersburg! 


Thank you for visiting the official web site for the Disston Heights Civic Association!  DHCA was formed in 1955 as a way for its residents and businesses to come together and share their needs, ideas, issues and concerns about the neighborhood.  It continues today as a place for residents and businesses to engage and get involved with the community, socialize with your neighbors, meet city representatives, local politicians and neighborhood businesses. Disston Heights Civic Association is the largest neighborhood association in St. Petersburg, representing over 8,000 homes.  We are always looking for new residential and business members who want to build a community, have fun; and, when necessary, solve problems.  Please come and join DHCA!  We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming DHCA meeting, social or event!!
