EVA Releases 2018 Strategic Plan Report

The Elmwood Village Association is proud to release the 2018 Strategic Plan, which builds upon the input of more than 450 stakeholders, lessons learned through decades of experience, and present opportunities for the community.

In 2019, the Elmwood Village Association will celebrate 25 years of service to the neighborhood and small business community in the Elmwood Village. Several of EVA’s programs are also celebrating milestone years, with the beloved Elmwood Village Farmers Market turning 20!

Recognizing present organization strengths and current needs of the Elmwood Village community, the EVA has outlined three strategic priority areas to guide and focus organizational efforts: 1) Small Business, 2) Public Space & Play, and 3) Community Engagement.

The mission of the Elmwood Village Association is to encourage a balance of growth and preservation, to support community-led projects and to promote an inclusive neighborhood for people to live, work, visit and prosper. Founded in 1994, the EVA is best known for its community programs, including the Elmwood Village Farmers Market, the Picnic in the Parkway Summer Concert Series, and neighborhood beautification projects.
