Issue Areas

There’s so much to love about Albany Park: cuisine, diversity, transit options, parks, and more. But our neighborhood does face some challenges. Here are the issue areas our meeting attendees have outlined as of paramount importance:

Support Local Business

  • Recognize responsible area merchants
  • Hold Supper Club nights at area restaurants
  • Raise awareness about zoning proposals within our service area
  • Invite entrepreneurs to consider our community

Connect Neighbors

  • Organize movies in the park, mixers, parties, walks, and dining clubs
  • Oversee Albany Park World Fest, a weekend street fest that brings tens of thousands of people to Albany Park

Community Education

  • Connect residents with info about news and events in our community
  • Collaborate with area groups on candidate and election forums
  • Develop online dining & shopping guides
  • Create flyers with information relevant to our neighborhood

Litter Abatement & Beautification

  • Organize regular clean-ups and anti-litter efforts
  • Coordinate beautification projects

We wish to rise to these challenges by connecting with neighbors and local authorities. Please, join us and lend your support!
