ABOUT WALDO TOWER NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

The Waldo Tower Neighborhood Association (WTNA) is not a traditional “Homes Association.” Rather, it is an active group of volunteers and neighbors whose passion is to create the best neighborhood possible and to be a part of a support network that helps others. Our boundaries include approximately 3,300 homes, making it the largest neighborhood in Kansas City.

 

The mission of the WTNA is to provide mutual benefits to members.

Additionally, WTNA has been organized:

 

  • To promote the general welfare of the neighborhood;

  • To protect the general health and welfare of its members;

  • To cultivate and promote attractive, well-kept homes and buildings;

  • To support municipal services of public safety, neighborhood improvement, and recreational activities and facilities;

  • To promote crime prevention programs and activities; and

  • To collect annual dues from members to provide a general fund to pay operating costs, fees, and expenses of the Association.

 

Many of these expenses increase each year, including the costs to send out communications to such a large area. We try to reach all 3,300 homes, but only about 300 residents are active WTNA members and that barely covers our operating budget.

 

It is thanks largely to these memberships that allow us to provide our Dumpster Days twice a year, which we learned was a service that our members highly valued. We continually seek to expand these types of events and more opportunities for our residents to find value in their community. Please consider becoming a member today!
