❙ Chamber President’s Welcome The Harwood Heights-Norridge Chamber of Commerce is proud to present its annual community guide. This guide is a valuable resource for finding local businesses, schools, churches, organizations and governmental services in the area. It is also valuable to our members for reaching customers, promoting their business and supporting the Chamber and community. The Chamber boasts over 100 members. This year promises to be exciting with even more events to plan, and special guest speakers at Chamber meetings. Together, the Chamber and its members strive to provide opportunities to network with other business owners, to improve business conditions and to give back to the community through scholarship opportunities and sponsorships of local events. We also strive to advocate for our businesses within the villages and with our elected officials. However, this is only possible through the time and participation of its members. To those businesses and organizations who are already members of the chamber – thank you for your support. For those in the community who want to know what we are about, please attend a meeting or

I would like to take this opportunity to give special thanks to the Chamber’s returning officers: Mark Fritsch of People’s Home Equity Mortgage, Warner DeJulio, owner of 312 Communications, Inc. and Jerry Kochowicz, branch manager of Wintrust Bank Norridge. I would like to welcome our new officer, Katherine O’Dell of Amari & Locallo.

❙ Norridge Mayor’s Welcome Dear Residents, The Village of Norridge is only two square miles in area and has almost 15,000 residents. The Village of Norridge’s proximity to Chicago and all the expressways makes it an outstanding location for businesses and residents alike. Norridge remains a great place to live and raise your family. The village completed a major expansion at the Harlem Irving Plaza. Target and K-Mart feature produce areas in their stores to give residents more shopping options. The Village of Norridge is driven heavily by its sales tax revenue, which makes up more than 70 percent of its annual

revenue. I am committed to developing available properties and bringing new jobs to the village. So after this long winter, take a couple of shopping days and support the local retailers and help keep your real estate taxes and local fees the lowest in the state. Sincerely yours, James Chmura Village President Village of Norridge

❙ The Dunning Read Conservation Area The Dunning Read Conservation Area (DRCA) is 23 acres of prairie, woodland and wetland combined to form one of the most unique and treasured natural areas Chicago has to offer. In 2007, a group of neighbors and local leadership came together to petition the state to protect this land as a sustainable landscape that supports biodiversity and human communities through natural resource preservation, education and recreation. Since 2007, DRCA has engaged neighbors and local businesses to support an ongoing effort to open up this area at the corner of Oak Park Avenue and Irving Park Road for neighborhood use. Walking on the nature trail, bird watching, native plant restoration and providing healthy habitats for native wildlife are all goals for the conservation area. DRCA is also interested in engaging the surrounding communities, developing community connections and supporting environmental education opportunities to increase the appreciation of this local ecosystem. When in the area, stop and take a look for yourself. DRCA is open April

1 through Oct. 30, sun-up to sun-down. The 1-mile-long, wood chip trail that winds through prairie and forested areas, near a small lake is a highlight not to be missed. DRCA sits on property shared with Chicago-Read Mental Health Center and parking is free, located just south of the center’s parking area. Although this area has been around for over 10 years, the work to completely open up the area is still in the early stages and DRCA needs your help. The third Saturday of each month, from April through November is set aside for community restoration efforts. DRCA volunteers meet at 9 a.m., roll up their sleeves and have a lot of fun. DRCA euncourages residents to participate in volunteer days. Visit DRCA and stay in touch on Facebook.
