The North Westside Communities Association (NWCA) started out as The Killiney Beach Community Association in the early seventies. These folks were responsible for constructing the Killiney Beach Hall, the fire hall and library. Their efforts were supported by individuals and groups, including the Killiney Beach Seniors Association.
Eventually the Killiney Beach Community Association was changed to the North Westside Communities Association to encompass all the communities that fall within our fire protection area.
In 2012 the NCWA was named beneficiary owners of the hall, library and portions of the fire hall. A plebiscite was held to request a portion of the tax base from North Westside property owners be devoted to covering the cost of operating these facilities. The NWCA presently receives a 2% mill rate, which covers the annual operating costs of these facilities.
In September 2020 the NWCA reorganized its operating structure to better serve our Communities. The eight Directors were given the opportunity to chair areas that would enable the Association to bring about positive results in the growth of our area.
