Annual meeting October 28

There are many changes proposed for the neighborhood we all call home. ECHO, the East Central Homeowners Organization, has been quiet for a few years. It is now back in action as we respond to these changes and work together to protect and promote our interests. ECHO is a collective of residents organized to share information and come together as neighbors to support each other and preserve the character of our community. Please join us at our upcoming annual meeting!

The ECHO annual meeting will take place Monday, October 28 at 7pm in Stevenson Hall on the second floor of the Wentz Science Center, 131 S Loomis St.

  • Meet other residents of the ECHO community
  • Learn about civic issues that affect our neighborhood and our city
  • Give voice to your concerns as ECHO can best represent them
  • Vote for the ECHO Board of Directors

Refreshments will be served and a drawing will be conducted.

For more information and to RSVP, contact Kathy Levitan.

Save the Kroehler Mansion

The Save the Kroehler Mansion group is separate from ECHO, but this information is being shared for the benefit of neighborhood residents.

The Kroehler Mansion was used as a North Central College dormitory for several decades before being sold to Little Friends in the 1980s. That group has now outgrown the property and wants to sell it back to the college. NCC is eager for this rare opportunity for expansion… their as-yet unclear development plans will likely have a profound impact on the neighborhood.


  • Attend the City Council meeting on Tuesday, June 18 at 7pm
