Although this website began as a showcase for Gladstone Park architecture, it quickly blossomed into a community site highlighting how special a place this sub-neighborhood of Jefferson Park in the Far Northwest Side of Chicago is to live. And how periled its status might be if residents don’t stay on top of faddish trends and development issues that could change its landscape. This section discusses how the community has tangled with smart vs. undesirable growth as it seeks to form its own identity through various means, including the possibility of historical preservation. Activism thus far has come primarily through through the involvement of the Gladstone Park Neighborhood Association.
DISCLAIMER: Every effort was made in this section to adhere to the highest of journalistic standards in presenting information factually and fairly, especially with development issues that might be considered controversial in nature. Although the author is a member of the Gladstone Park Neighborhood Association, she does not speak for the group.
CREDIT: Media, particularly local outlets, have played an invaluable role in informing Gladstone Parkers about all the vital issues affecting them in recent years. Readers can support the yeoman’s job Brian Nadig has done reporting in the community’s weekly Nadig Newspapers to “keep local news alive” while availing themselves of its free online access with monetary contributions.
