CANA - Who We Are ...
The Central Area Neighborhood Association of Wilton Manors, Inc. is registered as a Florida not for profit organization and exists for the purpose of providing a forum for the residents of the central area of Wilton Manors to meet, discuss and solve issues that impact the well-being of the neighborhoods within these boundaries.

These issues include, but are not limited to, zoning, city ordinances, crime, traffic patterns, beautification, special events and the overall welfare of the neighborhood residents.

Message from CANA
The Central Area Neighborhood
Association of Wilton Manors:
  The Heart Of Wilton Manors Beats Here...

Congratulations to returning Board members Paul Rolli, Raymond Carrier, Matthew Gill, Fred Caplan, Brent White and Constance Ruppender.  CANA thanks these volunteers for their time and talent for the benefit of the entire neighborhood.

CANA is the voice of the people and membership helps strengthen the community. We are a voluntary membership organization and strive to keep the membership informed about quality of life issues. Members receive information first via our email list. It is always better to be informed earlier on major projects than to be in the “I wish I knew about this earlier” category later in the game.

We had a packed house at the February 1st general membership meeting.  We thank all those who attended and welcome all the new members who joined that evening. Information was provided on the following activity in CANA:
  • City proposed conceptual plan of sidewalks throughout the city
  • Corridor study on Andrews Avenue and Oakland Park Boulevard – large scale rezoning initiative
  • Potential development on NE 21st, NE 3rd and NE 21 St. in a Traditional Neighborhood Overlay District (TNOD)
  • Potential Town House Development at 549 NE 21st Ct. at NE 22nd, Drive (TNOD) to be for sale
  • Proposed addition to The Venue on Wilton Drive
  • Proposed Pride Center low income housing development for the general population, not limited to LBGTQ.
  • Wilton Walk – 14 rental Town Houses under construction on NE 28th & NE 6th Lane – est. completion fall 2017

CANA has begun the process of collecting information on installing cross walks on NE 6th Avenue in the area of NE 28th.  With the expected increase in traffic on NE 6th Avenue due to the Walmart, narrowing of Wilton Drive and increased density in surrounding areas, CANA wants to get an early start on the process.  If you are interested in supporting this initiative please email membership@canawm.org with your name and contact information.  Your information will be provided to the CANA member coordinating this effort.
