National Night Out

Final planning is underway for WBNA’s first National Night Out event Tuesday Aug 1st

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

West Bench Neighborhood Association would like to invite you to join us for FREE  Delsa’s ice cream and activities.

The community will be meeting again with the design consulting group involved with developing Spaulding Ranch.

This meeting will have a brief presentation of the comments provided to date, and then we will be working in groups to come up with potential layouts for the site, with a debrief at the end of all of the groups potential options.
