Public Hearings and Workshops

When Keystone neighborhoods are confronted with issues that impact our community - the KCA defense team is available.  As needed, the team may advise and facilitate the appropriate responses for conferences, workshops and public hearings.

Keystone and KCA Activities

 The Keystone Civic Association serves as the cornerstone of  Keystone and sponsors many activities.  Such as our Family  Fun Day, concerts, Business expo, summits, Adopt-a-Road  clean up, and Citizen Corps & Emergency Operations plan.

Through monthly meetings, newsletters, emails, and social media, the KCA provides information to area residents on a variety of quality of life subjects such as lake management, Florida-friendly landscaping, gardening, agriculture, and wildlife.  It offers opportunities for sharing and exploring issues pertaining to Keystone’s residents and the Keystone community.

The Keystone Park Civic Center and Austin Davis Library accommodate community organizations and neighborhood meetings, self-help, yoga, exercise, and gardening classes, children and adult sports activities, senior citizen groups, and seminars.

Our churches and other community groups also organize activities including dinners, concerts, plays, antique fairs, and donation drives
