Advocacy, Improvements, and Maintenance

  • Ongoing advocacy: Work with neighbors when they have concerns and ideas
  • Notification of issues and legislation that may affect you and your home or business
  • Access to city officials to cite and correct problems quickly
  • Advocacy for walkable quality neighborhood public schools on the West Side
  • Grant writing for neighborhood infrastructure & improvements (playground, streetscapes, trees, etc)
  • WBNA has helped to implement laws & policies that expand & protect neighbor rights. In recent years, this advocacy has led to legislation that prevents placement of gas meters on historic and non-historic properties & a pilot program for overnight permit parking that became Providence’s official Resident Permit Parking Program!
