Welcome to the Spring edition of Village View!

It’s hard to believe we’re already several months into 2021.  As I reflect on the turbulent year that was 2020, I’m grateful to have spent it in Roscoe Village, buoyed by my neighbors and friends.

While many of RVN’s events had to be put on hold or shifted to virtual, we have continued our mission of supporting education, safety, and neighborhood beautification & sustainability, fully budgeting these areas for 2021.

We have also been preparing for Retro on Roscoe, scheduled for August 13-15.  An event like Retro requires almost year-round planning and after reviewing projections and recommendations from the City of Chicago and health experts, we made the decision to move forward.  We will continue to be guided by best practices and if national or City of Chicago recommendations change, we will re-evaluate.

As we get back to “normal” we are working diligently to make changes for the better.  We are launching a redesigned website to better inform our community and are using RoundUp App to help fund our community giving.

Enjoy the weather as Chicago blossoms!
