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.

JUDGES FORUM TO BE HOSTED BY THREE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSNS  Meet the judicial candidates on July 20th at 7pm at Hagen Park - Forum moderated by the League of Women Voters



As a founding member and past president, it has been a true honor to also serve as a board member for CANA the past two years. CANA was conceived in 2007 when area residents were concerned about the real estate boom and the impact of development on its neighborhood. The idea was for CANA to be the voice to our city leaders, and, indeed, all these years later, it has served in that capacity quite well.

CANA’s membership has grown steadily over the past few years and we continue to add new members as folks discover us. And, while we are pleased with the community’s interest in CANA, we are also seeking ways to improve the diversity of our membership so that the organization truly reflects the community as a whole.

Ever wondered about CANA? Maybe you’ve heard about us, but aren’t quite sure if we’re your cup of tea. So, accept this invitation to give us a try by attending one of our meetings and/or talking to one of our Directors. We’re betting you’ll enjoy your time with us, and we’re hoping you’ll become a member. We haven’t completed our mission yet and we need your help.

Membership in CANA requires an individual to be a Wilton Manors resident, either property owner or renter, and at least 18 years of age.

Got questions? Send an email to membership@CANAWM.org with your contact information. It would be our pleasure to speak with you directly. In my time with CANA, I’ve come to agree with what Helen Keller said: “Alone we can do so little, but, together we can do so much.” Please, join us. There is much to do! - Constance Ruppender


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 Roberta Moore explained the proposed changes and sought public input. Code Enforcement Supervisor Julio Davila also participated to field questions about code enforcement. We ask that everyone pay attention to the City Commission and Planning and Zoning calendars to keep up on code changes that are on agendas for public hearings so you can attend and voice your opinion.
