Calumet Stewardship Initiative

Pullman Civic Organization

The Pullman Civic Organization holds monthly "Town Hall" meetings for residents to discuss issues in the Pullman community. This strong civic organization, which represents approximately 800 families, was founded in 1960, when the entire historic section of Pullman from 111th Street to 115th Street (also originally known as the Original Town of Pullman) was threatened with total demolition to create an industrial park. The Organization defeated the proposal and has begun a lengthy process of improving the community. The Organization continues to preserve the historic nature and quiet atmosphere of this landmark community. Today several volunteers and working committees strive and continue to make Pullman one of Chicago's most interesting, nice, and safe places to live.

Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Historic Pullman Visitor Center, 11141 S. Cottage Grove Avenue. Membership is open to all residents and to all property owners. Annual Membership dues support the Organization's activities. Mailing Address - c/o Pullman Civic Organization, Hotel Florence, 11111 S. Forrestville Avenue, Chicago, IL 60628
