15th Annual Woodlawn Community Summit


The Woodlawn Community Summit is a collaboration of neighbors, youth groups, elected leaders, business owners, and community stakeholders seeking to promote the comprehensive growth and well-being of Woodlawn and its surrounding communities.


With leadership from the South East Chicago Commission, the Summit has grown from its infancy into a standing-room-only community leadership model worthy of recognition and replication as a model for civic engagement.


The Woodlawn Community, including communities on Chicago’s mid-south side, is undergoing a historic transformation.  The Obama Center has begun construction, new housing developments and important infrastructure is planned; all for a new and exciting opportunity for residents, stakeholders and business owners.


Join us for this annual event, designed by residents for residents.  You are invited to learn more about the proposed improvements for community engagement, safety, housing, sustainability and overall development.  And the Summit is a great connection for a strong network of resources and support.


After the last two years of the pandemic, Woodlawn is now a stronger and essential community in the rebuilding of Chicago’s southside.  We know we are stronger when we work together, and we are excited about the next five years of development.  Join the conversation as we share vital information about Woodlawn and the future of business, housing and tourism.  This year’s Summit is designed to help you learn more about the current plans and economic development in Woodlawn.
