Established in 1997, River North Residents Association (RNRA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit and non-political organization that exists to protect and enhance the quality of life in Chicago’s River North neighborhood through constructive engagement with residents, city officials, local businesses, and other stakeholders to effect positive change.

The organization’s emphasis is in six key areas: public safety; responsible development & land use; sustainable environment and infrastructure; a well-managed hospitality sector; safe and enjoyable public events; and support for local charitable and community development programs.

We encourage you to join the Association. We are comprised of volunteer residents, working together to make River North Chicago’s premier neighborhood in which to live, work, play, and shop. Our annual outdoor film festival, seasonal family events, and Taste of River North are enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors. RNRA provides value to our members and furthers a sense of community through principled and effective neighborhood advocacy. We value your support and welcome your feedback.
