The Old Irving Park Association (OIPA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit all volunteer community group active on Chicago’s northwest side since 1983. Our members, ranging from young families to longtime residents, work together on many projects which impact our mutual quality of life. These range from painting murals under viaducts and creating street banners to traffic and zoning issues and working with housing developers and area businesses. Social activities include an annual Holiday Potluck, Spring Egg Hunt, and June Ice Cream Social. OIPA serves as a link between the residents of Old Irving Park and all of our elected officials.
Our members – 600 households within a one square mile area – attend meetings at 7:30 PM on the 2nd Monday of each month, September through June (except January). We meet in the lower level of St. John’s Episcopal Church, 3857 N. Kostner. OIPA also publishes a 48+ page monthly newsletter which is included in the $25 annual membership ($15 for seniors).
