Little Italy Residents Association (LIRA) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping residents of the downtown San Diego neighborhood of Little Italy. With many new families relocating to downtown, we offer the opportunity through our organization for residents to get involved with local events, give input on new civic projects, and best of all, to meet their neighbors. With the commitment from the citizens of our community we can continue to create a more friendly, safe, diverse community.
