ABOUT WALDO TOWER NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION
The Waldo Tower Neighborhood Association 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 3,300 homes, making it the largest neighborhood in Kansas City.
The mission of the Waldo Tower Neighborhood Association 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 see about 300 who commit with a membership 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 valued the most. We are seeking to expand these types of events and to seek out more opportunities for our residents to find value in their community.
If we could have more people invest with a membership, we would also have a louder voice at City Hall.
On September 20, 2017, a vote was held to change the official name of our organization to the Waldo Tower Neighborhood Association. Our bylaws were revised and adopted by majority vote on January 13, 2018. Click here to download a .pdf of our current bylaws.
The Waldo Tower Neighborhood was first established in 1947 as the Tower Homes Association, named after the water tower located in Tower Park at 75th and Holmes Road.
