Wednesday, May 6, 2015, is our next monthly meeting.
Join us at Gompers Park Fieldhouse (4222 W. Foster Avenue).
Meet & Greet begins at 6:45pm.
Meeting starts at 7pm.
We look forward to seeing you – all are welcome! 

In April, our featured speaker was La Shawn Ray, Principal of Palmer Elementary School. He updated us on Palmer’s exciting achievement of Level I status and how we as a community can support the school through volunteer efforts.
A NMIA Biz Dev Committee is kicking into high gear and looking for members. If you’re interested, please contact Jim O’Reilly for more details.
The committee will begin to analyze our Lawrence/Elston/Foster/Pulaski area to understand existing businesses, identify vacant properties and explore possible new businesses. The group will evaluate the interests and buying power of our existing demographic to develop a master plan to attract new, resident-friendly business offering walkable, sustainable options for all who live here.

Neighbors Creating A Vibrant Neighborhood!

What can you get for $10? Not much these days? Well, in North Mayfair, $10 goes a LONG way! How does this sound?
Neighborhood art. Sports team sponsorships. Nature walks. Parades. Movies in the Park. Social gatherings. School support. And more.In 2014, members produced an unforgettable Fourth of July parade…transformed a viaduct with mural art…introduced neighbors to local restaurants like Ssyal, Hala Inn, Chicago Kalbi and others through the North Mayfair Supper Club…helped save 30 ash trees by supporting GPAC’s “Save the Ash Tree” effort…sponsored two GPAA baseball teams for boys and girls…helped bring two summer Movies in the Park events to Gompers Park…hosted monthly meetings about building a business district, the impact of O’Hare flight changes, flood control and more. 

NMIA troops spruce up Palmer’s landscape, help at Little Gompers Cleanup days, keep you informed on Facebook and create The Improver to keep everyone connected and inspired.


If you’re still wondering what a $10 membership supports, it’s this in a nutshell: thousands of hours of voluntarism, a commitment to making North Mayfair the community of our dreams and a legacy of resident participation that started way back in 1929.


NMIA members are somewhere
doing something good for North Mayfair.

Let’s make 2015 our best year yet!
Join. Volunteer. Care.

Together, we make this neighborhood great!
