This is a great neighborhood! Let’s work together to keep it that way. You know the saying, “There is strength in numbers?” We know it is true.
Membership is free and you are not obligated in any way. We send out a weekly newsletter as well as alerts for urgent issues that need your immediate attention. We host happy hours so that we can connect with neighbors and friends, local businesses and City officials or staff. We, also, hold monthly meetings.
We want you to join us – tell us what issues are important to you; tell us what is great about our neighborhood; tell us how WAvNA can be more effective.
Or, do you have an idea you want to work on? Do you want to volunteer? Are there special projects of interest to you? Tell us and we will work together to make it happen.

West Avenue Corridor Neighborhood Association
¤Raised awareness of our community as one of the most resident-dense, dynamic and diverse in Miami Beach and that we are more of year-round community than in years past.
¤Member-driven opposition raised awareness of a proposed ordinance to incentivize hotel development by reducing hotel requirements to provide off-street parking. Members believe hotel development in the West Avenue Corridor is incompatible with the residential nature of our community. In addition, members are arguing against the ordinance’s negative impact on all Miami Beach residents due to the resulting loss of funds that can be used to develop creative transportation solutions to address the Beach’s traffic problems.
¤Working with other neighborhood associations and City officials, WAvNA is seeking ways to build on the residential character of Miami Beach’s neighborhoods by encouraging development that fosters this desirable aspect.
¤Reminded City officials of the serious flooding issues in the Corridor and worked in support the Stormwater Master Plan that should bring much needed relief to our neighborhood’s flooding issues.
¤WAvNA members have attended Commission meetings and countless City Committee meetings to ensure the West Avenue Corridor’s interests are top-of-mind.
¤WAvNA members’ concerns about the studies underpinning the rationale for the West Avenue Bridge, resulted in the City commissioning a neighborhood-wide traffic analysis that will take a holistic approach to our current and future traffic issues.
