Watrous Heights Neighborhood Association
Our WHNA By-Laws state "The purpose of this association is to promote the social welfare of the Watrous Heights Neighborhood Association area by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements for the common good and general welfare of the Community."
Much of what we do is accomplished through the information we provide on this website, the relevant emails we provide to specific neighbors, the knowledgeable featured guest speakers that we bring in to provide our WHNA neighbors timely information, and the information our WHNA neighbors provide to us regarding where we can be the most help.
We currently have three support people from different departments of the City that provide the latest relevant information to our neighbors, answer their questions and help us to reach the best solutions. If you participate in our meetings, you will get to know these three. You will learn they are key to what we are able to accomplish.
