Huntsville City District 3

One of the many benefits of being associated with the Chaffee Neighborhood Civic Association is access to important city leaders and the opportunity to discuss issues that have the potential to drastically affect our neighborhood. Lyle Voyles, CNCA City Liaison, and 1st Vice President on our Board of Directors, does a wonderful job at cultivating these relationships that ultimately benefit each of us in this community. He informs the membership of relevant community and Huntsville City matters and may also intercede on the behalf of those who ask for assistance with situations that involve the city government.
