The Purpose of the Association is to: enhance public safety, encourage sustainable commercial growth, preserve property values, and establish a cooperative relationship with elected officials for all residents of the Westwood community.
Mission: The mission of the Westwood Neighborhood Association is to further the common and general welfare of the Westwood neighborhood through empowerment of its residents.
The Westwood Neighborhood Association strives to keep abreast of zoning changes , issues and appeals. We try to have a presence at meetings that effect Westwood, both City & Township. We strive to get information out to you through this web site as well as Face Book, Nextdoor and e-mail.

Westwood is a great place to live, work and worship. We are a great community with neighbors who care about each other.
The neighborhood association would like to know what skills and interests each of you have so that we can connect you with events and no - obligation service opportunities as they come along.
Please fill out the following form to let us know more about you!
Not all the residents of Westwood are 100% self-sufficient. Some have un-met needs - maybe as simple as a ride to a doctor appointment of to pick-up groceries or prescriptions. There are agencies to help or maybe a neighbor might want to assist?
Look around your neighborhood.
Some neighbors are not aware that burning leaves, trash or garbage is against the law in Westwood. The city and township have similar ordinances against open burning and trash barrel burning.
Do you still have neighbors breaking the law? If you can furnish some information, we can see that they receive notice of the ordinance, without involving the governing agencies - unless it continues.
Tell your neighbors about Westwood Neighborhood Association! They might be interested in the neighborhood, too!
Kalamazoo has a project in which we are participating, called: IMAGINE KALAMAZOO 2025.
We want to have YOU think about and communicate to us what you would like Westwood to look like in 2025!
We welcome your comments at any time and plan some public events where people can express their insight. It's all about what you want to see!
