WANG Advertising Spec Download

The West Austin Neighborhood Group (WANG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the character of West Austin and safeguarding it from deterioration. WANG is actively involved in community development, ecology, safety, and other matters that impact the quality and character of our neighborhood and the City of Austin.

To keep residents informed, WANG publishes newsletters throughout the year.  Each newsletter provides updates on ongoing developments, events, and initiatives in the neighborhood, serving as a valuable resource for community members. The annual newsletter offers a comprehensive overview of WANG’s achievements, important topics, and ongoing projects throughout the year.

Through these newsletters, WANG aims to foster community engagement, raise awareness, and encourage shared responsibility among residents. By staying connected and informed, we can work together to ensure the continued vibrancy and preservation of West Austin’s unique character.

WANG publishes two print newsletters and 8 to 10 e‐newsletters which are emailed to paid members as well as anyone who is interested in neighborhood issues and requests it. The print newsletters are published in April/May and again in September/October (prior to the WANG Annual Meeting), both of which are circulated to the nearly 5200 residences in Tarrytown and Depp Eddy. All proceeds support the mission of the organization.
