Hollywood-North Park Community Association
Click to Replace
Since 1951, the Hollywood-North Park Community Association (HNPCA) has worked to make our community the best it can be. Our goal is to support and promote the common interests of our residents, business owners, and community institutions.

We strive to keep you informed of local issues and events and be a liaison to elected officials and local agencies. We also provide activities and gatherings that foster "neighbor meeting neighbor" believing this is an important way to keep our neighborhood a friendly, safe, and economically stable place to enjoy life and do business.

HNPCA is your community association if you live or own a business within these boundaries: the south side of Peterson Avenue to the north side of the North Branch of the Chicago River; from the east side of Pulaski Road to the west side of the North Shore Channel.

Stay informed by joining HNPCA's Email List at HNPCA@sbcglobal.net.  It's a free and easy way to receive the latest news and updates concerning our community.
