Alfrescos in Rogers Park
In 2021, RPBA partnered with local businesses and we submitted two Alfresco proposals for southbound Glenwood between Lunt and Morse and Jarvis Square. Both proposals were awarded and planning began with the input of local law enforcement, businesses and elected officials.
We saw the Alfresco program as a way to further foster and support the local vitality of the community by creating public space for outdoor dining and community programming where area residents can get to know their neighbors and businesses in the area. The Alfresco program will also ensure the successful return of annual events and create new opportunities for area artists and performers and local businesses.
