Purpose and Goal of the
Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference

The purpose of the Conference is to attend to the civic needs of the community; work toward an attractive, secure, diverse, and caring community; and to promote participation of residents, businesses, institutions, and organizations in programs and activities that advance the interests and concerns of the community. It serves the community as a watchdog, independent voice, and clearing house in the community's ongoing conversation and decisions about those matters which affect and define community life.

Working together makes better neighbors and neighborhoods. See GoodNeighbors/Volunteer Ops page
