In July, the WNA sent a letter of support to Councilman Keith Potts for Proposal No. 245, 2021 amending the City-County Annual Budget for IMPD requesting an appropriation to use active enforcement to prevent excessive speed and reckless driving in the areas listed in the proposal. See attached for more details.
The WNA has been working on getting neighborhood identification signs with our new logo made and placed throughout our boundaries. We have a wonderful logo, thanks to our neighbor Duane Rader, who graciously donated his time and hard work to create it for us. Unfortunately, the bids we have received so far have exceeded $650 per sign, not including installation. We are incredibly grateful for the few donations we have received so far but need more. Visit our donation page where you can donate directly. Until then, if you would like to donate, email us directly and we’ll get you in contact with our Treasurer.
