Hello!!!! Welcome to HNA's new website www.ourhermosa.org! It's been a long time coming, we've been around for 18 months already but only now have found the time to get this site up. We hope you like it!
This website will be our central repository for neighborhood news and information, events, sign up forms, our bylaws and board information (including board elections), our programs, and more. Please take a look around and let us know what you think in the comments below.
For those of you who are new, HNA is a residency advocacy group that aims to fight civic apathy in the Hermosa community area through beatification, increased social engagement and awareness.
We have held over 40 events since our inception and have accomplished things like securing funding for a new school playground, funding for a community garden, securing the first Hermosa Divvy station, securing a new refuge island for the Healy Metra station, as well as other pedestrian friendly enhancements and street improvements. Along with infrastructure improvements, HNA is bringing structural change and community power through the creation of a Park Advisory Council at Hermosa Park and organizing efforts at our neighborhood schools.
There are approximately 140 members of HNA, and 40 very active members who comprise voting membership, including 13 board members.
Service Area: For the purposes of the HNA, Hermosa shall be defined as the area in the city of Chicago, Illinois that is bounded by Pulaski Road on the East, Belmont Avenue on the North, Cicero Avenue on the West and North Avenue on the South. This area comprises three defined communities: Hermosa Park, Kelvyn Park and Belmont Gardens.
