Projects and Priorities

Current Projects

Since the inception of WHNA’s Neighborhood Plan, replacing the storage shed in Weigent Park has been a priority. With left over 2019 CIP funds awarded from the city, WHNA is focused on making this plan a reality.

WHNA teams up with the City of La Crosse and La Crosse School District’s Hogan Administrative Center to start a victory garden that provides fresh vegetables at no cost to the neighbors of Weigent-Hogan neighborhood.

Located at corner of 19th Street S and Mississippi, the Hogan pollinator garden was installed during 2018 and expanded summer of 2019.

Completed Projects

Playground Enhancement
Infrastructure Committee

Playground equipment replaced at Weigent Park with 2019 CIP money. This included full replacement of existing equipment with consideration to variety of age groups. New soft surface replaces mulch which was clogging storm drains.

Expanded Canopy
Environment Committee
Summer 2019

With help in planning and support from Parks Department, WHNA utilized CIP funding to plant new boulevard trees to fill in areas where ash trees were cut down and other gaps. Much consideration went into neighbor education and aftercare.

Safety Crossing
Infrastructure Committee
Summer/Fall 2019

Using CIP funds, WHNA worked with the city of La Crosse to upgrade the crosse walk at 21st Street S and Cass. Upgrades included median barrier with safety features for the hearing and visually impaired.
