   A citywide forum on education, safety, health, government, the environment, open space.

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.

November Monthly Meeting

The November Meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. The Guest speakers will be the new White Plains Department of Planning Commissioner Christopher Gomez, AICP and White Plains Department of Building Commissioner Damon Amadio, P.E.

New White Plains Depatment of Building Commissioner Christopher Gomez

Mr. Gomez (photo right) was Port Chester's Director of Planning and Development for three years before taking over the White Plains Planning Department in July. His background includes stints at the Westchester County Department of Planning and the New York City Department of Transportation. He is credited at Port Chester with spearheading the Comprehensive Plan, Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan, and with substantial zoning map and text amendments.

Mr. Amadio, who has been Building Department Commissioner since 2006, is responsible for enforcement of the ordinances - City, County, and State - regulating the use and occupancy of private land and structures. That includes ordinances for zoning, air pollution, and noise, and mechanical, plumbing, energy, electrical, fire and residential codes, among others. His broad engineering experience and professionalism has enhanced White Plains' reputation as a safe, healthy and forward-looking municipality.

After their introductory remarks, Commissioners Gomez and Amadio will participate in a Q & A session with the audience, so please come prepared with questions.

The meeting is open to the public -- bring your friends and neighbors! -- and will start promptly at 7:30 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.

1. The WPCNA Nominating Committee will be meeting this month to recommend a slate of officers for 2016. If you are interested in serving as an officer or in serving on the Nominating Committee please contact one of our current officers.
