North River Commission is the nonprofit community and economic development corporation for the northwest side of Chicago, from the Chicago River to Cicero and Addison to Devon. Founded in 1962 by concerned residents and neighborhood institutions, NRC unites over 100 civic associations, businesses, schools, institutions and places of worship to improve the quality of life in our community by creating affordable housing, quality education, arts & cultural endeavors, open spaces, and thriving neighborhood businesses.
North River Commission thrives because of its connection to residents of our service area. Active neighborhood associations, which we call "civics" are partners in the work we do together to improve the quality of life for all. The follow is an alphabetical list of those civics.
