New Organization Forming - Area Bound by Grand/Chicago/Damen/Western - Meeting Saturday

Sat, Jun 14, 2014 11am

If you live in the area bound by Grand/Chicago/Damen/Western, there is a new neighborhood organization forming.

After receiving over 100 responses to the "neighborhood options survey", we conducted a thorough analysis of the survey results. We contacted and met with the presidents of Chicago Grand Neighbors Assn (CGNA) and Ukrainian Village Neighborhood Assn (UVNA) to solicit feedback on either joining with one of their organizations or forming our own.

If you live in the area bound by Grand/Chicago/Damen/Western, there is a new neighborhood organization forming.

After receiving over 100 responses to the "neighborhood options survey", we conducted a thorough analysis of the survey results. We contacted and met with the presidents of Chicago Grand Neighbors Assn (CGNA) and Ukrainian Village Neighborhood Assn (UVNA) to solicit feedback on either joining with one of their organizations or forming our own. After reviewing several pros and cons, in consultation with the president of East Village Assn (EVA), they recommended forming our own neighborhood organization. Since that time, we have contacted the Smith Park Neighborhood Alliance (SPNA), the local CAPS facilitator, and Alderman Maldonado's office to make them aware of the recommendation and formation of a steering committee. We have received positive support from everyone!

Whether you own or rent - please consider coming to the first meeting of the new neighborhood group on Saturday, June 14th at 11am at Tuman's Tap located at the corner of Chicago Ave. and Leavitt St. The purpose of the initial meeting is to:

• establish relationships of self-interest and reasons for desiring a neighborhood organization,
• review survey results, including pros and cons of joining an existing neighborhood organization or forming our own,
• identify ways each individual can contribute talents and skills,
• set dates for future steering committee meetings and a larger community forum.

We hope you can join us for the initial meeting on Saturday June 14th. If you cannot attend, but would still like to get involved, simply reply by email to neighborhoodoptions60612@gmail.com.

Please share this information with your neighbors, fliers will be distributed throughout the neighborhood as well.

For more information and to take the survey and get connected to your neighbors go here: http://neighborhoodoptions.blogspot.com/

    Sounds like a good plan, see you there :)

  • Hi Janet,

    Sorry for the late response...I wanted to make sure I responded to your question.

    No, we are not creating a new neighborhood or renaming an old one. Sts Volodymyr & Olha and certain nearby blocks in that part of the grid from Chicago/Damen/Grand/Western will always be thought of...

    Hi Janet,

    Sorry for the late response...I wanted to make sure I responded to your question.

    No, we are not creating a new neighborhood or renaming an old one. Sts Volodymyr & Olha and certain nearby blocks in that part of the grid from Chicago/Damen/Grand/Western will always be thought of as being part of the broader Ukrainian Village neighborhood and cultural zone.

    We neighbors are organizing because of the lack of stewardship in the grid and the boundaries of the existing neighborhood groups do not include this area. This always comes up when using neighborhood names and talking about boundaries.

    We had an initial meeting a month ago and you can see what happened here:

    Also, the next meeting is this coming Tuesday, July 15th at Old Oak Tap at 7pm for those that live in the grid of Chicago/Damen/Grand/Western. You can find out what is going on at the meeting Tuesday night.
