KNA is at a Critical Crossroads and We Need You

The Kenny Neighborhood Association represents all residents of our neighborhood. KNA is your go-to source for advocacy with the city, for social events, and for creating a sense of community for all.Crossroad

  • We provide input on city initiatives and work with our elected representatives to share neighbor views.
  • KNA sponsors popular events throughout the year like the Ice Cream Social, Kenny Festival, New Neighbor and Renter Welcome dinner, Spring Clean-up, and Fire & Ice Skating Party.

In 2023, KNA will stand at a critical crossroads. One road takes us forward but requires investments from neighbors and others. The other road leads to less programming and advocacy.

KNA, and all neighborhood associations, have depended on funding from the city and donations from residents to operate. Unfortunately, Kenny and the other neighborhoods face significant reductions in city funding starting January 1.

In the past, KNA received $25,000 per year to support activities. In 2023, that funding will fall to $14,000. We do have reserves that we will use sparingly to cover expenses, but the reality is that we need to find new revenue to ensure that we remain a viable association.

Our other choice is to significantly cut programming, but we are hoping to avoid that route.
