North Branch Park Meeting Rescheduled
Vote for Local School Council
Recycling and Earth Day Events
Dear Neighbors,

The Community Meeting on the North Branch Park Preserve is rescheduled to Monday, April 23rd at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the Little Sisters of the Poor, 2325 N Lakewood Avenue.

The need for real park space is triggered by the unprecedented Lincoln Yards development - a game changer for quality of life on the North Side. A city-wide coalition of designers, open space advocates, sports leagues and Northside community groups is advocating for a public park on the east side of the Chicago River called The North Branch Park Preserve

Join these groups and learn why the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times  strongly endorsed this vision as the last opportunity to create true public open space in the former Industrial Corridor. 

Learn how true park space would ease projected density, transportation challenges, and support property values.
