Carey Hegge of Explore LaCrosse

See instructions below on how to attend the ZOOM meeting below!

Carey Hegge, the Director of Tourism Services at Explore LaCrosse will meet with us and speak about LaCrosse's Visitor Centers and their role in welcoming tourists and guests to the area and how the community plays an important part in presenting what LaCrosse offers.  The centers are staffed by volunteeers and would love to have the community join in spreading the word on the wonders of LaCrosse.

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 (see the Save the Date box below).

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.
