Mid-North is a cultural wonderland. We’re are surrounded by the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, the Lincoln Park Conservatory, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the Lincoln Park Cultural Center, DePaul University and Oz Park. Francis Parker School, Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, St. Paul’s Church, and the Greenhouse Theater Center are right in our neighborhood, along with wonderful city restaurants and unique shops.

All residents and businesses in the Mid-North area are eligible to be members of Mid-North.  The boundaries are as follows (the dotted black line represents the boundaries of the MidNorth neighborhood; the dark green area represents the MidNorth Historic Landmark District):



Our mission is to protect and preserve the historical character and charm of our architecturally vibrant community. We also hope to educate our residents about local and city-wide issues, foster strong citizenship, and create a sense of community within our city.

Our Planning and Zoning Committee evaluates all proposed local building projects and renovations to ensure compatibility with our landmark guidelines. We work with our Alderman regarding requests for zoning relief within our Mid-North neighborhood and with the Department of Landmarks regarding changes to designated landmarked properties within our district.

We review issues of concern within the neighborhood, whether they be local developments or city-wide ordinances. Meetings may involve informational presentations or board votes.

We request membership dues to sustain our all-volunteer organization. We fundraise when necessary through neighborhood festivals. We also plan community social events to foster a sense of community and camaraderie.


We invite residents, area businesses and institutions to join us as we work together to promote the wonderful spirit that is Mid-North. To learn more about MNA, send an email to MidNorthAssn@gmail.com.
