The West Loop in Chicago is a bustling hub of activity, both residential and commercial, and a new community group plans to make it even more desirable for its residents as well as outsiders considering living in this thriving corner of the Windy City.
According to a recent piece from Gazette Chicago, the Neighbors of West Loop, or NOWL, community group was recently launched in an initiative to improve the quality of life for individuals in and around the West Loop area of Chicago.
“NOWL already has a number of past West Loop Community Organization, Randolph/Fulton Market Association, and West Central Association board members involved as well as several C.A.P.S. representatives, Park Advisory Council members from Skinner and Mary Bartelme Parks, and Police District Advisory Committee volunteers,” said Patti Mocco, NOWL member. “In the past, having a voice with some of the other community organizations could be hit or miss depending on the issues. But this group, NOWL, has shown an interest in reaching out to any West Loop resident who wants to get involved in making their community a better place.”
She added how crucial it is for communication to be fluent between residents and local businesses. And there are plenty of businesses to communicate with in West Loop as this neighborhood has experienced much commercial growth over the past several years and is starting to equal that pace with its residential growth, as well.
