The White Plains Council of Neighborhood Associations (WPCNA) coordinates the neighborhood associations in White Plains, NY.
Its purpose is to enhance the quality of life in the City, and in particular, in its neighborhoods.
As an advisory council, the WPCNA functions by disseminating information and opinion to the public and public officials, and by encouraging local action.
Its monthly meetings bring together both representatives from the member associations, who come to discuss the citywide issues impacting their neighborhoods, and unaffiliated White Plains residents, who come to voice individual concerns.
The WPCNA encourages members to develop and share resources and activities to benefit the people of White Plains.
September Monthly Meeting:
How Do We Stack Up? Local Realtors® Explore Property Values, Market Forces
The September Meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at 7:00 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. Our guests will be local Realtors® Nicholas Wolff (Rand Realty), Ruthmarie Hicks (Keller Williams) and Gina Cipriani LaPlaca (Coldwell Banker).(Note the earlier than usual start time.)
It's a seller's market in White Plains today with prices up and inventory tight. But nothing lasts forever. Our panel of experts will look at the forces driving prices and the factors creating value. What are buyers looking for? What features, what amenities, what neighborhood conditions? How do we compare to Scarsdale, Armonk, Bedford Hills? And what can we do as owners, voters, neighborhood associations and city planners to protect what for most is our largest personal investment?
Also in this meeting, we welcome the recently formed Stewart-Ross Neighborhood Association and hear from other associations concerned about City plans for a nature park at Baldwin Farm, salt storage at Gedney Yards, a developer's plans for high-rise towers (assisted living and college dorm) on the former Good Counsel property, and what's up with the City vs. FASNY.
The meeting is open to the public -- bring your friends and neighbors -- and will start promptly at 7:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
This is sure to be a lively evening so please come early to get a good seat and allow time for audience participation and networking.
