The Upper West Side Coalition was formed in 2021 when a dozen block associations came together to create an umbrella organization to help community groups form and thrive. Block Associations unite neighbors to beautify our blocks, solve local issues and support programs like composting and recycling. We recognize that we all benefit from diverse and inclusive neighborhoods and we are committed to creating an open and welcoming environment for all members of the community. The more we connect with each other, the stronger we will be.

Cannabis Forum Replay
We had a great forum on Wednesday, June 22, about cannabis retailing with representatives from the NYS Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) and DA Alvin Bragg's office. You can
view the forum at your leisure on YouTube and download the OCM's presentation, which includes contact information for providing feedback and comments about upcoming regulations.

Save The Date!

We're taking a break and will not produce a forum in August, but we'll be back in September. Have a great summer, Upper West Siders!
