About Our Committees

Committees are the backbone of the work and fun that happen at the WBNA. Entirely neighbor-led, committees make our initiatives, programs, and advocacy happen, from reviewing proposed local development projects (Community Development Committee), to working with city and state officials to address crime and blight in our neighborhood (Neighborhood Action & Crime Watch), celebrating the west side's vibrancy through community-building events (Programs & Events), and working to maintain socioeconomic diversity in our neighborhood (Community/Comunidad 1).

These are just a few of the things our committees do to "fuel community," and we'd love you to take part in the action!

 

GETTING INVOLVED IN OUR COMMITTEES

Committee meetings are open to anyone wishing to attend. We are always seeking neighbors to become involved in the valuable work we do as an organization. And we invite those who simply want to learn more to drop by a meeting or to contact us.

All WBNA Committees meet from 7-8pm following the General Meeting during Neighborhood Nights. Please sign up for our newsletter, follow us on Facebook and/or check our events listings on this site to confirm the dates of these meetings.
