Neighborhood Association

Coming Fall 2018! A Downtown resident’s neighborhood association doesn’t exist just yet. But we know a lot of you think it should, so we’re rounding up a few good downtownies (we just made that word up, but it works) to help get things started. Interested? Fill out our interest form below (or contact NRC), and we’ll let you know what’s next.

Q: What will be the boundaries of the Downtown association? A: we hope residents themselves will help answer this, with guidance from NRC and city planners. On one hand, a neighborhood’s boundaries should approximate what the neighbors themselves consider the boundaries to be. On the other hand, careful attention should paid to issues of inclusion, differences between sub-parts of the proposed neighborhood, adjacent associations that already exist, etc.

As a starting point, NRC expects to propose these boundaries for discussion: 1) South of LaSalle to Western, east of William to the river, then south of Western to Sample and east of Chapin to Michigan.
