A Word From the President

If you have not yet attended one of our WHNA Neighbor's meetings, please do that soon. There is no cost to attend.

You will have an opportunity to become involved in helping make our Watrous Heights Neighborhood a safer and friendlier place for all of us to live.

To see the schedules and AGENDA for the upcoming meetings: Click below.

There will NOT be a February Meeting. 

The next meeting is Monday March 6th at 6:00 pm in the South Union Elementary School Library (room 201). 

The Polk County Assessor's Office will be presenting information to neighbors at this meeting. This information is about the upcoming revaluation year. 2021 and 2022 saw record home sales, both in volume and value, which will have an effect on everyone's 2023 property assessments. Everyone will receive new assessment notices at the end of March/first of April. Please join us, and bring your questions, for this important meeting.

The high risk is in homes built before 1978. The highest risk of lead poisoning is in homes built before 1960. 

Unfortunately, that is about 3 out of every 4 homes in the Watrous Heights Neighborhood Association area.
