Welcome to West Urbana
West Urbana Neighborhood Association (WUNA) is a grassroots, volunteer organization. Our mission is 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 within walking distance of downtown, campus, and excellent schools.
WUNA was created in the 1970s by a group of neighbors who wanted to preserve the residential integrity of the neighborhood. WUNA does not provide rules or regulations for the neighborhood; that is the task of the City of Urbana. Those of us fortunate enough to call West Urbana home owe a debt of gratitude to those early founders and to the continuing efforts of current residents to protect the streets, trees, parks, quiet spaces, and charming characteristics of West Urbana.

JD McClanahan is a planner for the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission. His office is working with the City of Urbana to create a plan for spending $12.97 million in federal pandemic relief funds, allocated to Urbana from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021. He asked for help publicizing this effort as well as the survey we as residents can submit to inform decision makers. McClanahan says:
The City of Urbana wants your input on how to spend a unique influx of federal funding!
