WNA Oak Hills Park Golf Course Survey
As promised, The West Norwalk Association (WNA) is conducting an online survey of West Norwalk residents about the proposal to build a driving range at Oak Hills Park Golf Course.
This driving range, to be paid for by an independent company, has been recommended by the Oak Hills Park Authority as a way to bring in more golfers and to keep the golf course financially solvent.
We have posted 5 different documents/viewpoints regarding the building of the Oak Hills Park Driving Range so our residents can make an informed decision.
1. The city has sent out a Request for Proposal (RFP) to have companies submit bids/ideas for the construction of the range. To review the RFP, please see http://www.norwalkct.org/DocumentCenter/View/4380
2. An addendum to the RFP: http://www.norwalkct.org/DocumentCenter/View/4409

See our photos from 2013 Spring Clean Up Day!
Gay Mac Leod, Co-President of the West Norwalk Association and Chairperson of the WNA sponsored neighborhood Clean Up, reports that more than 40 people participated in cleaning trash and debris from areas in our neighborhood on Saturday, April 13.
Eight volunteers were teens from Build On who served their community hours and did an excellent job in clearing the properties of the Meeting House and Norwalk Land Trust of trash, branches, leaves, and large logs. In fact, we have learned that these young people cleared 100-150 pounds of dumped items such as sheetrock and and construction materials from the Nursery Street location. Joel Zaremby, past president of the WNA, transported these young people back and forth so they could do their work. Read more here
The Board of Directors of the West Norwalk Association sends its best wishes for a healthful and happy new year to all the neighbors who reside our lovely area.
On December 6, we hosted our traditional Holiday Party at the beautiful and festively decorated Dolce Center. An annual event, this year we had more than 100 guests, new and old neighbors and their families, who feasted on delicious appetizers and desserts as they visited with each other or met some new people who moved into our neighborhood. A wonderful time was had by all who attended.
Plans for the coming year
At this point in the year, we are welcoming four new board members and beginning our plans for the coming year. In fact, we already are beginning the process to offer a scholarship for a student graduating from Brien McMahon High School in June.
As usual, we encourage West Norwalk residents to attend board meetings at Fox Run School on the first Monday of the month, contact the board of directors with ideas and comments, and join our Facebook page. We also hope that 2013 will be a time when you will become a dues paying member if you have not already done so. All of our directors are volunteers who work to make West Norwalk an even more desirable place to live and we count on your dues and support to make that a reality.
A Letter from the Co-Presidents
On behalf of the West Norwalk Association, we would like to welcome you to our beautiful rural neighborhood. The purpose of the West Norwalk Association is to foster and preserve the residential character and quality of life in the West Norwalk community. In order to do so, the association has developed and maintains 3 adopt-a-spots to beautify the area, makes a financial donation to Fox Run Elementary School, and this year presented a scholarship to 2 students graduating from BMHS. Furthermore, the organization has planted trees on school property, sponsors an annual spring cleanup day, delivers welcome baskets to people moving into the neighborhood, and offers our services to neighbors in need of help. In addition, we respond to neighbors concerns and work with community leaders to try to solve issues and problems our neighbors might have.
We invite you to join us at our monthly Board of Directors meeting which is usually held in the Fox Run School library at 7:30 pm the first Monday of each month. There, neighbors have the opportunity to offer their input and raise issues for the board to consider.
Also, please check our website often and become a friend on Facebook. You can contact us online with any ideas, questions, or concerns you may have.
We hope that you will attend our Annual Meeting on September 23rd at Sons of Italy and our Holiday Party on December 6th at the Dolce center. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about our community in a social atmosphere.
Here is a membership form. While all residents of West Norwalk are automatically members, we are a totally nonprofit volunteer organization. All of our dues and donations go towards helping West Norwalk. The association depends upon active membership dues to help serve the community through our school donations, scholarships and beautification programs. We hope that you will join us in our efforts.
