Our Focus

The Racine Triangle Association is dedicated to beautifying the streets of the Triangle as well as providing a safe and clean neighborhood for dog walkers, families, and residents in the River West area on Racine Ave., Willard, Elston, and Augusta. We are reshaping the future by preserving our neighborhood’s history, instituting a green program, and integrating a network among Racine Triangle neighbors. Learn More

Our Partners

With the generous donations of our community businesses like Big Shoulders Coffee and Windy City Cafe in 2018, the Racine Triangle Association hosted a series of events including the annual Trick-or-Treating Social and Racine Triangle Block Party. In 2019, we will expand the community green initiative and host more events with new business and neighbor support.


thousand Dollars Raised

In our community’s first fundraising effort, we raised over $2500 for the block party last year. We hope to raise more funds to be used to create a uniform aesthetic, host neighbor-connecting events, clean the viaducts, and restore the green spaces in 2019.



Years Serving this community

In the span of only 1.5 years, we have moved the growing homeless population from under the viaducts, installed speed bumps, increased signage to make our streets safer, and more. In 2019 we hope to do even more.



neighbors Impacted

A growing trend of community spirit has brought over two hundred residents together for the first time in our neighborhood. This spirit will strengthen in 2019 with a slate of exciting new events and projects!

Dedicated to making the neighborhood safer, the Racine Triangle Association has built relationships with Alderman Burnett’s office and the Chicago Police Department. With the participation of our neighbors, we now have a new awareness of any incidents on our streets. For real-time incident reports, concerns, and event/neighbor announcements, be sure to follow the Chicago CAPS12 Twitter page and the Racine Triangle Association Facebook group.
