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.

Where: Fairmont Park

When: Aug 1st 6:00PM to 8:00PM


The city will be having visits from the Police and from the Fire department during this time. Please come and join us!

Spaulding Ranch Public Meeting #2 Design Charrette

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

Wednesday February 1st at Valley View Elementary from 6-830pm.

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. Hopefully it will be fun, but it will probably take the entire 2 and a half hours.
