Linden Citizens Association

Linden has a very impressive Citizens Association which is really punching above it’s weight.

It is these associations which are the lifeblood of our communities and must be listened to and their recommendations acted on.

A while back the Linden Citizens Association circulated to all Linden residents its list of achievements over previous years. I was pretty impressed and look forward to working with them closely.
