About the Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance
The Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance was founded in 2006…
(add text here describing origins and providing brief history – see to do notes below)
The Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance mission is socially conscious and supportive neighbors creating an inclusive and welcoming community.
The purpose of the Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance is to provide an environment to meet neighbors, exchange ideas, prioritize projects, propose solutions, and implement plans for the neighborhood. The Neighborhood Alliance is concerned with issues that affect the quality of life in the community. Issues such as: education and schools, proposed residential and commercial development, zoning regulations, traffic and infrastructure improvements, as well as social activities and events that will strengthen the neighborhood. Additionally, the PDNA is committed to developing, facilitating, seeking community input, organizing, and delivering a variety of comprehensive community surveys, and/or an assortment of community projects and programs such as neighborhood festivals, block parties, seasonal celebrations, crime prevention activities, historical and educational programs and beautification plans for upgrading neighborhood parks.

Open items and To Dos (all PDNA):
- Add brief history/overview to top section, with link to Wikipedia page
- Tina to provide future project info (advocacy page?)
- Somewhere need to be sure to specify where/how BoD members are active in the community (advocacy page?)
- Review and revise all section text
- Replace map with image that shows main focal area and extended focal area (could create something similar to what YoChicago! has done)
