We are Windward residents who have come together to address quality of life concerns in our area. We are a voluntary community action group, not affiliated with or part of any political party, government entity or other organization.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of Windward residents by addressing environmental issues (noise, odors, crime, traffic and other issues) affecting our neighborhoods. We identify problems, propose solutions and monitor progress.
