Join a Committee…

Real Estate Development Committee: Board members and concerned residents work with staff to identify potential sites for development and potential development partners; select consultants to work on development projects; and monitor progress of development efforts. Email Erica: ESchwarz@swbcdc.org to join.

POHWER Committee: This is the organizing committee made up of Hyde Park residents that works together to advance the improvements that they and their neighbors want. Contact Alex to learn more.

Board of Directors: We are always looking to identify community members who have an interest in helping to move this organization forward. Experience  on a nonprofit board is not as important as a deep passion for your community, ideas about the changes you feel are important, and a desire to spend some time investing in this work. We don’t always have openings on our board, but they come up now and then. If you think you might be interested, we’d love to get to know you! Email Erica to learn more.
