Affordable Housing Forum

NNA is sponsoring a forum titled "Can Affordable Housing be a Part of our Future?" on Tuesday, April 24th, 6:30 - 8:30 PM at the Sulzer Library, 4455 N. Lincoln. We strongly encourage our membership, and all interested parties, to attend this timely and interesting forum. Click here for details and a list of partiipating members including Alderman Ameya Pawar of the 47th ward.

Neighborhood Outdoor Chritmas Displays

The results of the second annual Neighborhood Outdoor Christmas Dispaly Competition are in. Well, it's not really a competition; there are no actual prizes. But GRO likes to recognize all the effort that goes into making the neighborhood look attractive for the holidays. Follow this link for photos of some of the outstanding efforts.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Welcome to the neighborhood!

The Greater Rockwell Organization (GRO) is committed to engage in activities that will promote civic pride and community welfare. The low-cost Membership is an excellent way to engage in your community.

From Wilson to Lawrence and Western to Virginia (at the river), you will see the elegance of Greater Rockwell Organization’s award-winning corner gardens.

The monthly GRO newsletter with a circulation of 1,500 reaches our community, as well as commuters at the Rockwell Brown Line station.

You have a more beautiful neighborhood due to the ongoing efforts of our graffiti removal program – and neighbors who join in the clean and green weekends.

Annual events such as the summer block party and the winter potluck dinner are a great way to share in our community spirit.

By signing up for GROnews (at the left, under Rockwell Station), you can join hundreds of neighbors who receive emails about local events, meeting reminders and important community alerts.

Whether you’re concerned about property taxes; public transportation; safer streets; a cleaner, greener neighborhood; a vital business district; or simply a place to say hi to your neighbors – GRO has something for you.

When we meet

Greater Rockwell Organization meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm. Meetings are held at Luther Memorial Church at the corner of Campbell and Wilson. Enter through the red doors (to the left of the main doors) on Wilson. You will find the buzzer up and to the right.

Committees

The goals of GRO are met through our community volunteers. Follow the links to web pages describing each committee's doings and how to contact the members if you're interested in getting involved. Please give the idea some serious thought – we welcome your participation at any level, and any amount of time you care to give.
