About The Central West End Association  | CWE History | CWE Photos

Our Mission

The primary purpose of the Central West End Association is to preserve and promote the best attributes of our vibrant community. We serve as a resource for residents, visitors and the institutions that call the Central West End home.  

Our Focus

To fulfill our purpose the CWEA focuses intently on four key objectives. Each of these objectives, and the activities that support them, result in protecting and improving the quality of life for residents, enhancing the experience of visitors, and supporting the corporations that call the Central West End home. 

  • Work with residents to foster a strong sense of community and a welcoming environment for visitors.

  • Provide timely information about initiatives and issues that impact our community.

  • Produce programs and events that celebrate our community and bring neighbors together .

  • Assist residents, property owners and real estate developers to preserve our architectural and historic integrity.

Message From Our President

History, Culture, Diversity, Vitality

Those are just a few of the reasons I moved to the Central West End over twenty years ago. What keeps me here; the respect for historical integrity, the social fabric of the community, the innovation and creativity of the people and businesses that have chosen the CWE as their place to thrive. Another reason...that I’ve learned over the last twenty plus years.....the CWE is always changing yet remains so very much the same.

This too could be said for the Central West End Association. While our mission remains the same - to promote and preserve the best attributes of our vibrant community and to serve as a resource for residents, visitors and institutions that call the Central West End home - our focus has somewhat changed. We are no longer a “neighborhood association.” In recent years the CWEA has developed partnerships that have dramatically increased the number and impact of our programs.

What will never change is that we are a member driven organization. We rely on you for ideas and direction. What’s important to our members is what motivates us in our effort to provide timely, relevant information and programs. Becoming a member has never been easier. Just visit our website at www.thecwe.org and click on membership. 

Together, we can continue the growth and traditions of the Central West End.
