By choosing East Lincoln Park as our home, we pay taxes to support the amenities and privileges that come with living in Chicago and this neighborhood.
Our children attend, or attended, the public schools, surrounding preschools and the city's private school institutions.
We frequent the businesses in the immediate area to buy our groceries, medicine, coffee and enjoy meals out at our local restaurants.
We take pride in living at the gateway to Lincoln Park and welcome visitors from around the city, country and globe to enjoy its unique beauty.
We are active participants in our local elections. We recognize our opinions and voices matter and, as stewards of our community, ensure we care for the neighborhood we love.
We are neighbors to one another and to the public space next door. We care for one another as well as for our community and those visiting. We raise our families here and take pride in our neighborhood.
We petition our local representatives:
1) To stand with us to defend Chicago's century-old East Lincoln Park Neighborhood
2) To commit to retaining residential zoning on Belden Avenue
3) To not let Francis W. Parker School buy out our homes, destroy vintage Chicago residences, and reduce Chicago's tax base
