The pandemic has interfered with our normal election cycles—According to our bylaws, 4 Board members would be elected in odd years and 3 Board members elected in even years.  We currently have 5 members serving on the Board with 2 open positions.  Three of the current Board were up for re-election in 2021 but extended their service on the Board to provide stability to our association.  We would like to have a full Board (7 members) in 2022.
On January 10th  we will begin electronic voting for our 2022 WHNA Board.  There are three open slots for 2-year terms and two open slots for one-year terms.  Eligible voters will be receiving a link to the ballot via email and have until January 31st to cast your vote.  Write in candidates are allowed with the permission of the person being written in.
We need your input!

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 to complete the survey.
