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...

Let’s make this the best year ever by supporting and participating in events that help make the City better.


I just want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support provided to me during my recent campaign for City Commissioner.  While my first time run was unsuccessful by 117 votes, the experience and insight I gained by knocking on doors and conversing with residents is invaluable. I will continue to work for the benefit of CANA and all the residents of the City for the greater good of all of us.

– January 17 Meeting – Andrews Ave. and Oakland Park Blvd. Update
The City of Wilton Manors has tentatively scheduled a meeting on January 17 on the current status of this long range project.  It is important for residents, particularly those who live near properties located on Andrews Ave. and Oakland Park Blvd., to attend this meeting.  It is always better to be informed earlier on major projects than to be in the “I wish I knew about this earlier” category late in the game.

February 1, May 10, July 26 and Oct. 25, 2017.  Members are encouraged to provide input on topics of interest.  Please email them to: membership@canawm.org.


Art Gallery 21 will be a host site for Museum on Main Street (MoMOS), a one-of-a-kind small town cultural project, in concert with the Smithsonian Institution. “The Way We Worked” exhibit will be located at Art Gallery 21 (Woman’s Club building) from March 24-May 5, 2017 and individuals are needed to serve as Docents for the exhibition.  If you are interested in serving as a docent for this exhibit, please contact Constance Ruppender at 954-661-4740 or Todd DeJesus at 954-390-2105 by March 1, 2017.

Docents are tour guides who conduct observations-based and inquiry-led tours. No formal training or experience is required to become a docent for a MoMS exhibition. Enthusiasm and commitment are the main qualifications needed. Each docent will be provided with a comprehensive docent guide and a 2-hour training workshop during the week ending March 24, after the exhibit is installed. We will explore the exhibit together, share question-and-answer time and, of course, have some refreshments!

Art Gallery 21 is a community service project of CANA and has partnered with the City of Wilton Manors, Central Area Neighborhood Association, The Pride Center at Equality Park, Stonewall National Museum & Archives Gallery and The Humanity Project to bring this exhibit to Wilton Manors.

– CANA welcomes GoHealthyPet to their new home on Dixie Highway and EAT Italian American Restaurant and Deli on Wilton Drive. CANA is sorry to see Thirteen Restaurant and Humpy’s Pizza leave us and wishes their owners well in future endeavors.
