Mount Washington is a beautiful blend of nature and city with grand houses
amongst modest homes. The Mount Washington Improvement Association is
dedicated to preserving and enhancing this eclectic yet cohesive blend of ways
To join the MWIA is to give strength to our collective voices in matters that
will have decades of lasting impact on our neighborhood and the surrounding
areas. Thanks to our many hundreds of members, the city respectfully listens
when the MWIA decides on a course of action. We have stopped development that
threatened to diminish the neighborhood, supported development that enhanced
it, and fought for communal enhancements such as parks and trails.
The MWIA began in 1885 and has a long history of working for and
reflecting the values of the neighborhood. It has thrived through the generous
support of our members. A wonderful benefit of being a member is our MWIA
member value card which promotes our local
businesses and saves you money. Joining is only $19 for new
members and $40 thereafter.
The playground construction at Northwest Park is going well. They have
installed the foundation slab for the playground.
