The West Ward Neighborhood Partnership focuses on neighborhood revitalization with multiple programs. The WWNP is a project of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley (CACLV). CACLV’s approach to neighborhood revitalization in Easton’s West Ward is informed, shaped, and guided by the community, where the people who will reap the benefits of a well-executed plan live. WWNP was created in 2005 after a Ten Year Neighborhood Revitalization Plan was developed from interviews, surveys, and community meetings involving West Ward residents of all ages. Easton Hospital and Lafayette Ambassador Bank made 10-year funding commitments at $1,000,000 each, supported by tax credits from Pennsylvania’s Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). WWNP also became the City of Easton’s Elm St. Program, with funding through DCED. Programs include: (1) Walkable Neighborhood/Safe Sidewalk Program, offering assistance to West Ward homeowners who need new sidewalks in front of their homes; (2) The Street Tree Program, offering grants for new street trees to enhance the neighborhood streetscape; (3) Business Signage Program, providing grants to West Ward business owners to assist them in upgrading or purchasing new signs for their businesses; (4) The Youth Mosaics and Murals Program involve low-income youth in the creation of large outdoor neighborhood artworks, under the supervision of professional community artists; (5) The West Ward-Northampton Street Gateway and Streetscape Improvements Project, to provide streetscape enhancements to the 600 block of Northampton Street, the main gateway to downtown Easton from the West Ward, to calm traffic, beautify the area, install traffic lights, improve pedestrian safety, and encourage investment; (6) Urban Ecology Project, seeking to assure a balance of the community’s urban ecology—the function and interaction of natural resources and systems that sustain an urban community—by advancing such things as affordable housing, citizen participation, cultural diversity, economic vitality, educational achievement, employment opportunity, energy efficiency, environmental health, generational interdependence, historic preservation and public policy, with practical, innovative, and sustainable methods.
