The East Andersonville Residents' Council (EARC) consists of long time residents, new homeowners, renters, merchants and community leaders in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood. We endevour to support and foster activity that creates a healthy, vibrant, affordable and well-connected neighborhood.
There are a million reasons to love the East Andersonville neighborhood. It’s an incredibly walkable neighborhood, with gorgeous green spaces and varied architecture. Our neighbors take full advantage of the many opportunities to enjoy life and spend time together, whether they find themselves shopping on Historic Clark Street or walking through the farmer’s market.
The EARC also hosts a number of social events annually that are fun for everyone: a spring hot dog social, a summer block party, a fall wine and cheese party, and a winter Christmas caroling.
EARC utilizes Tidy for the following areas:
Newsletter & Communications
The Newsletter & Communications Committee oversees the preparation and distribution of the neighborhood newsletter, oversees the Association website, responds to email messages, and handles general marketing issues for EARC. The eastandersonville.org website exists in tandem with the newsletter and includes important information on the history, happenings and resources for the community. Both are produced with information gathered from the SNA Board of Directors, our public officials and the City of Chicago to ensure communication of important information to our membership. Input from Association members and neighbors is very welcome.
Safety & Traffic
The Traffic & Safety Committee serves as liaison to government agencies and other organizations concerning the condition and safety of the neighborhood. It works closely with representatives of CAPS (Community Alternative Policing Strategy).
EARC Events Committee oversees and coordinates events, meetings, and related functions to serve the interests and the needs of the East Andersonville community. Annual Events include the Summer Block Party, Autumn Hot Dog Social, and Winter Wine & Cheese Event as well as the East Andersonville Residents' Council Annual Meeting, and periodic social and fundraising events for members and the community.
This committee monitors association membership renewals, welcomes new residents, and actively seeks new members and partners within the East Andersonville neighborhood. Additionally, this committee maintains the membership database and works to discover the interests and concerns and tap the talents of new members who wish to volunteer.
Garden & Beautification
The Garden & Beautification Committee strives to preserve and protect the neighborhood’s greenspaces including parks and walkway. Together we work to encourage greenspace initiatives throughout the East Andersonville neighborhood.
It has been a good experience so far. I love the TidyHQ team and appreciate the level of support.
