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 Heart Of Wilton Manors Beats Here...

ROAD SAFETY: The turn out of more than 100 people at the successful joint neighborhood Cross Roads symposium is a testament to community strength.  We appreciate the recent actions by all involved to expedite safety solutions on Wilton Drive.  We all need to stay involved and work together to bring about the changes desired by the community.  While the lighted crosswalk was proposed at the April CANA meeting, the subsequent Cross Roads meeting, resident and City actions as well as the FDOT response shows the effectiveness of staying on top of an issue in a professional, timely and collaborative manner.  CANA expresses its appreciation to everyone involved.

FDOT LETTER: CANA President sent a letter to FDOT urging quick corrective action on roadway safety.

WALKED THE DRIVE:  The CANA President, other involved residents, representatives from the City of Wilton Manors and FDOT walked the drive to explore possible temporary and longer-term safety solutions.  FDOT has agreed to expedite safety fixes at NE 20th and Wilton Drive using a phased approach. Changing the timing of the existing signals was also discussed. Narrowing of Wilton Drive is not part of the expedited safety fix.

Upcoming Issues:
  • CANA is working on getting together information about the increasing train traffic and quiet zones.

  • CANA is working with developers on proposals under consideration.
