About Us

Since its founding in 1995, the North Winton Village Association (NWVA) has worked tirelessly to keep crime and drugs away from the area, to beautify the neighborhood, and to keep intact the charm of an early 20th century “village” with the amenities of the 21st century.

The NWVA partners closely with the City of Rochester Police Department (RPD), as well as city code enforcement, economic development, local schools, elected officials, and various other organizations. Currently, North Winton Village has the lowest crime rate in Rochester, due in large part to the diligence of the NWVA.

The NWVA is run by a dedicated group of neighborhood volunteers. There are no paid personnel.
