2 City of La Crosse Police Officers assigned to WHNA for Community Engagement
The City of La Crosse Police Department is expanding their neighborhood resource officer footprint in the City by assigning 2 patrol level officers to the WHNA neighborhood. One of the officers works days and one works nights. They will be attending our neighborhood meetings to hear our concerns and update us on any initiatives impacting our neighborhood. The officers are Jesse Cotto and Alex Scray. If you were at our Neighbor’s Night Out you may have met Alex as he attended. So, if you have issues you’d like to bring to their attention, or are interested in an update from the Police Dept. be sure to attend the WHNA general meetings on the 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30. They are virtual so just go to whnalax.org, click on “Join the Meeting” and follow the prompts!

Be part of charting our neighborhood's future
Want to help guide our neighborhood’s future? Become a member of the 2023 WHNA Board! As a Board member you have a chance to represent our neighborhood to the City and help them identify neighborhood needs and issues. As a Board, we identified the need to update the Weigent Park shelter and playground and we helped the city see the need for flashing beacons on Cass and Jackson streets to help pedestrians and cyclists cross safely.
In January, we will be voting for four open 2-year Board terms. We encourage you to run for the WHNA Board and help us preserve the things we love about our neighborhood and improve it to address issues of concern. Be a part of guiding WHNA’s future!
Below is the topic for our final meeting of 2022! All meetings will be via ZOOM until further notice. Planned topics are subject to change.
November: Forward La Crosse with Tim Acklin

The 2022 Hogan Garden is ready for bed! Many thanks to the diligent weeders and waterers for making this year's garden a success! For any questions about the 2022 garden, please contact Linda Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sue Bulk at email@example.com. Soon we will be discussing the viability of a garden in 2023. We know that our neighbors appreciated the produce and we love that, but too much of the work has fallen on too few people. If you want to see the garden continue, please consider signing up to volunteer NOW.
