Membership, e-mail member list and listserv policy

Membership is open to anyone who lives within the geographic area represented by WUNA. Members have the option of adding their e-mail address to the listserv (WUNA e-mail list) to receive WUNA related messages. WUNA is a grassroots, volunteer organization. Its listserv, which is also maintained by volunteers for the neighborhood benefit, is an excellent forum for neighbors who wish to discuss items of interest. In no way does it reflect the beliefs of the membership as a whole or the WUNA Steering Committee. We welcome your involvement. Join WUNA.

Procedural Guidelines

Mission

The West Urbana Neighborhood Association (WUNA) has been established to preserve the residential integrity of the neighborhood, while continuing to welcome a diverse mix of residents to its lovely, quiet, tree-lined streets. WUNA seeks to maintain and enhance the neighborhood’s friendly, attractive, and safe environment that is in walking distance of downtown, campus and excellent schools.

Geographic Area Represented by WUNA

WUNA encompasses the area bordered by Lincoln Avenue, Vine Street, Main Street, and Florida Avenue. The neighborhood, which is home to the State Street Tree Guide, symbolizes the urban forest that gained the City of Urbana the unique designation as Illinois' first "Tree City USA."

Authority

WUNA is a grassroots organization, loosely structured by a Steering Committee and Coordinator. Decision-making within the Steering Committee, WUNA meetings at large, and within Action Groups will be in the spirit of consensus, while operating under a majority rule. WUNA works in collaboration with residents, property owners and city officials.
