May 2022 WHNA General Meeting 
9 May 2022  6:30 PM
Leah Miller of Parks, Recreation, and Forestry

See instructions on how to attend the ZOOM meeting below!
 
Leah Miller with the La Crosse Department of Parks, Recreatio, and Forestry will tell us about the City's plan to encourage residents to help beautify the city's open spaces.  Round-abouts, boulevards, medians, and other miscellaneous open spaces currently in grass or unspecified vegetation (weeds) can be planted with ecologically beneficial perennial plants and shrubbery.  The NO MOW MAY policy will also be discussed.

REMEMBER!  The meeting will be on Monday, March 14th, 6:30 PM via ZOOM. 
 
The program will be followed by a short business meeting to keep you up-to-date on the issues in our neighborhood.  We will update information on the Hogan Garden, the razing of the Weigent Shelter, and we will assess interest in WHNA participating in the August Neighbor's Night out.
 
Please don't miss this opportunity to learn and to be engaged with your neighbors!

Tell Us Your Thoughts!
Every year the City of La Crosse designates CIP (Community Improvement Program) funds for various improvements throughout the city. These funds are designated for projects that improve the City's infrastructure, safety, beautification, etc. CIP funds are being used to replace the Weigent Park shelter and have been designated in the past to help neighborhood associations realize infrastructure improvements within their boundaries (think the new play structure in Weigent Park, boulevard trees and the rapid flashing beacon on Cass and 21st St).
The WHNA Board is interested in learning what other improvements you would like to see within the WHNA boundaries. Don't hold back, let us know your top five concerns or desires for Weigent-Hogan by completing the survey on our web site. Go to https://whnalax.org/landing/surveys/survey-cipfunding/ to complete the survey.
Thanks!
The WHNA Board
