Elliot Park Neighborhood, Inc. is hosting its annual meeting Monday, May 17 at the East Village courtyard near 14th Street and 11th Avenue.

The neighborhood board, made up of residents and community leaders in Downtown's southeastern corner, will hold board elections and review Elliot Park's Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Phase I plan, a development guide addressing housing and livability issues.

The annual meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. with

a social hour and music. Elections will start

at 6 p.m.

Residents, workers and those who own property in Elliot Park are eligible to run for a board seat. Ten seats are open.

The neighborhood group has spent much of the year reviewing plans for new housing developments, including one proposed by Chicago-developer Tandem Developers for a 26-story condo tower at the corner of 10th Street and

Portland Avenue.

The Elliot Lofts proposal, just a block away from the 27-story Grant Park project, is

nearing completion.

If the new housing developments become fully occupied, the neighborhood stands to gain about 1,000 new residents.
