The Yucca Mesa Improvement Association was founded in 1961. The association was formed as a means to help improve the Yucca Mesa area. The association is represented by a Membership Board of Directors voted into office by the members of the Association. The Yucca Mesa Community Center located at 3133 Balsa Ave. was built by and is owned by the members of the YMIA.
The community center is available for use by its members for events such as birthday parties, wedding receptions, family reunions. We are presently the local polling place for the citizens of the Mesa.
The YMIA represents its members on county issues through its partnership with the HVCC. The YMIA currently holds its board meetings on the 1st Monday of each month which members of the Association and the Community are encouraged to attend and on the 4th Friday most months hosts a potluck for residents of the area as way for neighbors to renew their friendships.
