Help us grow the WPHA and fully fund security patrol service

i Nov 11th No Comments by

The 2020 membership drive is off to a successful start! We had 200 homes renew or join the Ward Parkway Homes Association during the first month of the drive in October. Of those, a record number of residents signed up for the KCPD security patrol this early in the fiscal year. Several residents became members at Neighborhood Night Out held at The District in late September. It was the first time we offered a convenient online payment station at that event. The WPHA Board is excited about the momentum and enthusiasm shown by our neighbors. Thank you to all who have paid dues for the 2020 fiscal year so far!

We live in one of the safest neighborhoods in Kansas City, and we know that deterring property crime ranks high among our residents’ feedback about what they want to see from WPHA. That’s why we need you to join WPHA as a Platinum member, to ensure we are able to maintain the KCPD security patrol for our neighborhood. We only need 100 more homes to sign up for the KCPD security patrol to guarantee WPHA can continue to provide this valuable service for our entire neighborhood. Should we have to cancel it in the future, the WPHA would go to the bottom of the waiting list KCPD maintain of other neighborhoods that want to provide this service to their residents. The waiting list is long and we would likely wait many years to get the service back. You can ensure that doesn’t happen. You can ensure KCPD security patrol continues to be part of our vibrant neighborhood.

In addition to the KCPD security patrol benefit, there are also other benefits included in your membership:

  • Maintenance and beautification of public green spaces.
  • Community events: Easter Egg Hunt, Neighborhood Night Out, 4th of July Picnic, Holiday Homes Decorating Contest and more. There are three new events in 2020 that will be for members only events: a Polar Bear Pub Crawl in March, Dumpster Day in May, and Hawaiian Shaved Ice Truck in June.
  • Ability to serve on the WPHA Board of Directors.
  • Reimbursement of block party expenses.
  • Eligibility to win best decorated home in Holiday Homes Decorating Contest.
  • Neighborhood news through website, Facebook, Nextdoor, and e-newsletters.
