Neighborhood Committees

There are many ways to participate in the neighborhood, not just running for a seat on the board. Several committees help discuss, brainstorm, plan and enact the work the neighborhood wants to see. If you are interested in participating in any of the following committees, or have ideas for other efforts, please reach out to us at or contact the committee chair listed below.

Committees meet separately from the regular monthly board meetings and schedules vary. Please contact the committee chair for more information and meeting times.

Community Building

The Community Building Committee of the West End Neighborhood Association seeks to expand our neighbors knowledge of neighborhood assets, grow engagement in our community, and improve the visibility of WENA meetings, events and member concerns.

Committee Chair/Contact: Rachel Rudeen


The mission of the Communication Committee is to create thoughtful and intentional communication, provides resources, and inform West End residents and the public so they can engage with the community and West End NA board.

Committee Chair/Contact: Lauren Pennisi and Cali Eby



The H&D Committee will support the WENA Board to maintain and enhance our historic character and urban forest, the diversity of housing types and styles, and connectivity to outdoor recreation that makes the West End Neighborhood unique.


The H&D Committee will explore historic preservation opportunities for willing homeowners, actively influence new development to align with the character of the West End, and collaborate with community service programs to support the transitional population.

Committee Chair/Contact: Dave Anderson
