The State of the Neighborhood

Happy New Year Neighbors!

We hope you and yours enjoyed warm and wonderful holidays.  As we look forward to the year ahead, we thought we would take a little time to reflect on what we as a neighborhood accomplished in 2015.

There were some big events in our neighborhood which wouldn’t have been possible without your support:

And, perhaps more quietly in the background, your LWNA Board and your neighbors were busy:

  • Attending Westside community meetings and events to represent and advocate for Ladera West, including the Walmart Market facilitated planning meetings, Westside Day at the Roundhouse, the monthly West Side Coalition meetings and the APD Northwest Area Command Appreciation BBQ.
  • Making calls, sending e-mails and talking face-to-face with City personnel to get broken street lights fixed, garbage removed from Ladera Golf Course, open space fences repaired/replaced and the arroyo at Ronda De Lechusas and Bob McCannon Parkway (formerly Ouray) cleaned up.  Did you know that the 3-1-1 homeless program participated in that cleanup?!
  • Creating a “handy person” list for the neighborhood.
  • Writing and hand-delivering over 1,000 LWNA Newsletters twice over the past year! (as well as maintaining and constantly updating this website)
  • Keeping each other posted on safety issues and lending each other a helping hand through the nextdoor.com website as well as just getting out and cleaning up our yards and the neighborhood on a daily basis – THANK YOU!!!

As we look forward to the year ahead, we’d like to ask you for your help.  As our Association takes on more projects and more means of communication (this website, the newsletters, constantly updated marquees), we could really use a few more sets of hands (there are 5 board members).  If you’d be willing to help distribute the next Newsletter, coordinate or participate in neighborhood events (such as starting a neighborhood watch or helping with the Great American cleanup), or just have a good idea to share, please fill out the form below.

Looking forward to a great year!!!
