About Our Neighborhood
On October 18, 1979, eight residents of the Oakwood-Lincoln Park area met to discuss plans for establishing an organization for their neighborhood. These residents agreed that a neighborhood organization was necessary to maintain the stability and viability of their community as an organized body and to give the residents a stronger voice in decisions that effect their lives in the neighborhood. The first meeting of the Oakwood-Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association was held on December 10, 1979, at Stevens Mortuary, Oglewood Avenue. There were seventy-five residents at the meeting. They identified and discussed community needs directly related to the area. Needs that were identified included problems with traffic, lack of city services and crime. Individuals volunteered to work on committees that were formed to address these problems.

As the Association developed, other community needs were identified and additional committees were started to address them. The number of participants and volunteers swelled as neighborhood residents heard about the organizationís existence and work.

The willingness of area residents to become involved in the activities of the organization dramatically illustrates the community felt need for such an organization and demonstrates the residentsí feelings toward community solidarity.

Today the Oakwood-Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association is still serving the people who live and work in the community. The Association meets monthly at the neighborhood club house, 916 Shamrock Avenue.
