NEW SNA Survey on Lincoln Yards: Please Voice your Thoughts & Concerns!
SNA has setup a new Lincoln Park Block Club website for new or established block clubs in Lincoln Park where we can communicate safety issues, crimes, new ideas and general concerns between other block clubs in Lincoln Park. People who form block clubs are concerned and care about their communities and share information, identify concerns and act collectively to address those concerns. “We cannot overcome what we ignore.” If we stay connected and communicate issues we will be vigilant and stronger.
“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” —Jane Jacobs
