   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.
