GLENVIEW EDGEWOOD MANOR AREA ASSOCIATION
The Glenview Neighborhood has always been a residential neighborhood, and the residents take pride in their homes and community. They have faced many challenges but they have worked together to maintain the neighborhood as a great place to live. In the mid-1960s, Glenview residents learned that Interstate 40 could come through our neighborhood. We also faced the possible construction of a liquor store in the middle of the neighborhood, which would change the zoning from residential to commercial. In order to preserve our beautiful community and the residential status of the area, the citizens of Glenview formed the Glenview Edgewood Manor Area Association on October 30, 1967.
Today, the association, which is completely volunteer-run, continues the good work begun by the group founders. The Glenview Edgewood Manor Area Association provides a voice and resource for the community to enhance and protect the neighborhood. We provide support and encouragement of all efforts, both organized and individual, to maintain and improve the homes, the streets, the families and the quality of life in Glenview Historic District.
The association sponsors a variety of area projects and special events, including neighborhood cleanups, meet the candidates’ forums, yard of the month recognition, safety coalitions, Glenview in Bloom (a community flower garden), Back-to-School bash, school supplies giveaway, neighborhood Christmas celebration and a neighborhood home tour.
The association works regularly with city council representatives, local agencies and the Mayor Citizen Service Center to benefit the neighborhood. The Glenview Edgewood Manor Area Association is dedicated to community, diversity, safety, growth and excellence.
