The Palmer Woods Association

E-mail Print PDF

The Palmer Woods Association (PWA) is our neighborhood organization dedicated to keeping our community strong, vibrant, safe and desirable for its residents. All neighbors are encouraged to join the PWA to help ensure that we can enjoy the quality of life we have come to expect and enjoy in Palmer Woods.

The PWA Board, a group elected by the membership to represent it, meets monthly to address neighborhood concerns. The Board members are volunteers—they donate their time since there is no paid staff. Annual PWA members’ meetings are held to elect new officers and to review the status of the previous year’s business with our residents. Board members are dedicated to improving our neighborhood and work extraordinarily hard to do so.

Funds collected from PWA dues, $495 per household, are allocated for the upkeep and safety of the neighborhood, including:
  • maintenance of the garden and island areas
  • street snow removal services
  • private security patrol
Other benefits include a subscription to our neighborhood newsletter, Palmer Woods Post, and Palmer Woods E-News, which emails security alerts and news updates. PWA maintains the website palmerwoods.org.
Dues also provide the means for PWA to sponsor and organize “get-to-know-your-neighbor” events, block parties, and social and education gatherings for children, families and homeowners. PWA organizes fundraisers such as the Music in Homes series and Home Tours.

The Board advocates on behalf of Palmer Woods to city, county and state representatives for improvements and services for our neighborhood.

PWA organizes committees and activities to foster a strong, safe and desireable community.
