Organization mission

Washington Park Consortium is a new organization formed from the Steering Committee that led the Washington Park quality-of-life planning process in 2008. Download the pre-publication version of the plan here.

Vision for the future

A vibrant neighborhood that shares its name with the beautiful public space to the east, Washington Park will offer cultural opportunities, housing for all income levels, and a safe environment. We are building on the rich history and culture of Washington Park to offer world-class opportunities for youth, adults and senior citizens through quality education, active and committed residents and a robust economy. We have a vested interest in the place where we live, work and worship and we are committed to serving the needs of all segments of the community. We share a vision of collective success and are committed to working together. Our aim is to improve a neighborhood we already feel proud to call home. We also believe it is time to strengthen our community-based and faith-based organizations and forge new partnerships to buttress our rebuilding effort and to protect the neighborhood’s interests should proposals for the 2016 Olympics become reality. Our vision for the neighborhood, however, extends beyond the Olympics and is rooted in our commitment to our home: Washington Park.
