Who We Are
The West Boulevard Neighborhood Coalition is a 501(c)3 nonprofit community-driven organization in the West Boulevard corridor. West Boulevard is one of Charlotte’s primary western corridors and serves as the commercial center for established neighborhoods to its north and south. The corridor is a community of over 13,000 residents, united by a powerful desire for an inclusive, sustainable, better way of life; where our neighbors are empowered because of where we come from, rather than limited by our beginnings.
The residents of the West Boulevard corridor make up 19 communities. The communities are Arbor Glen, Barringer Woods, Bent Oaks Apartments, Capital Drive, Clanton Park, Kingspark Apartments, Little Rock Apartments, Parker Heights Apartments, Pinecrest, Ponderosa, Pressley Ridge Apartments, Reid Park, Renaissance West, Revolution Park, Roseland Apartments, Sandhurst Apartments, Tyvola Crossing, Westover Hills and Wingate.
The goal of the WBNC is to ensure that collective efforts involve local residents, churches, community organizations and businesses in the West Boulevard corridor and that these efforts are beneficial to the economic development, education and health outcomes for the residents of the West Boulevard corridor.
We proudly boast the heritage of:
- Moore’s Sanctuary A.M.E. Zion Church
- Plato Price School
- Carr Heights
- Reid Park
- And much, much more!
We’ve come together, set goals, gotten to work-determined to do all we can to become all we can be. Driven to make life great here today and an even better tomorrow. The time is now and this moment is ours-We are the West Boulevard Neighborhood Coalition!
The West Blvd Neighborhood Coalition (WBNC) sponsors programs in the community that facilitate education, information and engagement for residents along the corridor. Our flagship program, Seeds4Change, focuses on providing opportunities for community youth to learn about agriculture and participate in farming activities to build both hands on and social skills.
The West Blvd Neighborhood Coalition will convene corridor-wide meetings on the 1st Tuesday of the month in February, April, June, and October 2020.
