Neighborhood Nights2018

Neighborhood Nights is a monthly gathering of neighbors. This new once-a-month community gathering is an easy yet structured way to get to know WBNA, our committees, and your neighbors. And we realize it can be hard to balance family and community involvement, so along with a featured presentation on a topic or issue of interest ―  we also provide free food, childcare, Spanish translation, and open gym time.

The fall Neighborhood Nights series runs September thru December, and gets at the heart of the community as we share ideas and work together.

One Night. Once a month. All neighbors. 

Engage with community, explore WBNA committees, and get involved! WBNA Committees meet during the second hour of Neighborhood Nights and are an opportunity for you to get acquainted. WBNA committees are always open to new members, and are now easier than ever to get involved with as they all happen at the same time (7-8pm) and place during Neighborhood Nights.Join one committee, or take part in more than one, by sampling committees.

A Message to Neighbors

As a west side neighbor, we know that the spirit of fueling community lives in you. That is why as our neighborhood evolves, the WBNA needs you more than ever to take part in shaping our future. By and for neighbors, the West Broadway Neighborhood Association can’t do it without you.

 Neighbors introduce themselves to one another at the beginning of  Neighborhood Nights , in February, 2018, where more than 80 people gathered.

Make an Impact in 2018

There are a few ways to make an impact this year. We rely on neighbors to get things done and to keep us operational. Ensure that WBNA keeps fueling community, become a member! And since the first Neighborhood Nights was a great success, please join us for the next one!
