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...


The area east of Dixie Hwy to the west side of the FEC tracks is now part of CANA giving everyone an opportunity to belong to a neighborhood association.  That area was not previously
part of any neighborhood association.  The State of Florida has accepted the amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and issued the relevant certification.  Updated documents are posted on the CANA website.


CANA President Paul Rolli attended the City parking workshop on March 24th.  The meeting sought public input aimed at finding parking solutions in the Arts and Entertainment district (Wilton Drive). 

CANA asked the City to consider the impact of any A & E parking solutions on the neighborhoods close to Wilton Drive.  CANA would like to avoid business “parking creep” into residential neighborhoods.

We are hopeful by working together as a community, we can find acceptable solutions for all stakeholders. 

Road Crossing Sign on Wilton Drive at NE 20th St


Great News!! – FDOT has advised that construction on the permanent signal and additional crosswalk on the north side of the intersection at 20th Street and Wilton Drive will commence in August. We look forward to this improvement on the Drive.


On April 13, 2016, the three neighborhood associations co-sponsored a forum to learn about proposed changes to the City Code of Ordinances.  Community Development Services Director Robert Moore explained the proposed changes and sought public input.  Code Enforcement Supervisor Julio Davila also participated to field questions about code enforcement.

On July 20, 2016, the three neighborhood associations will be co-sponsoring a forum to meet the Judges running for offices in our districts.  The League of Women Voters will moderate this forum.  Please join us to learn about the judicial candidates.
