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.

Courthouse

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.

April Monthly Meeting

The April Meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. The Guest Speakers will be Naomi Klein and Yvonne Gumowitz of EcoNeighbors, and Kevin Nunn, Executive Director of the White Plains Business Improvement District (BID).

Naomi Klein and Yvonne Gumowitz of EcoNeighbors

Take It or Leave It. Naomi Klein (at left in the photo) and Yvonne Gumowitz will talk about The White Plains Take It or Leave It (TILI) Shed at the Gedney Recycling Center. The TILI Shed is a place to bring your perfectly good, but no longer wanted items -- instead of throwing them away. And while you’re there, browse the cast-offs your neighbors left to find something you’ve always wanted (or didn’t know you wanted until you saw it). The sustainability project is a collaborative effort between the Department of Public Works and Econeighbors.
