Chicago Bulletin (Newspaper) - May 7, 1964, Chicago, Illinois Page 2 very few problems in affluent Vernon Par the bulletin thursday May 7, 1964 Community h quiet and Little known by Hurley Green residents of Vernon Park appear to have found a Mecca and pulled in the sidewalks after themselves. Little known and hard to find Vernon Park nestles snugly Between its better known neighbors Burnside and West Chesterfield. A visit to Vernon Park is like turning Back the anxieties of time. The area is quiet Beautiful and restful to the Eye and ear. The Hustle and Bustle of Urban living is soon forgotten upon crossing the boundaries of this Community. On a warm Spring saturday afternoon one hears a symphony of natural rustic sounds. The soft Whir of the Lawn mowers the splashing of sprinklers the occasional bursts of laughter from Happy children soon lulls the visitors into a state of euphoria. The Man pushing his Lawn Mower pauses to wave to your passing car. Children in the Well shaded streets quickly jump to the curb making certain not to impede ones tour. The time and Effort spent seeking information As to the whereabouts of Vernon Park is Well Worth the experience of visiting this Model Community. How is Vernon Park Able to maintain its almost lethargic Pace one of the reasons might be due to the fact that there g a a. A amp v t ? i it a a Are no through streets or commercial ventures located within its Borders. The uninformed visitor might continue past Vernon Park without even a Side Ward glance. The North and South boundaries Are Burnside and 9-Itli Street. Busy South Park is the Western Boundary with cottage Grove completing the rectangle. One of the most striking features of Vernon Park is its conformity to terraced Green lawns. The Well kept lawns provided Beautiful settings for the equally attractive Homes. While Vernon Park residents vary occupation Wise economically the Community must be considered As up per Middle income. Its affluence is reflected in the architectural Harmony of the area. Where most communities Are struggling for existence and recognition Vernon Park appears to be contented with its present status quo. True there is a Vernon Park Burnside Community Council but the councils function is minimized. A visit to the Home of Milton Olive 9111 Vernon president of the Council was most interesting. Olive moved into Vernon Park Only a few years ago and does not regret his decision. Lie sought better housing with a Nice location and Vernon Park met his requirements. As president of the Council he related that there were no really serious problems in the Community. The residents keep up their individual properties there Are no juvenile problems and there Are no zoning and housing problems. One of the recent problems faced by the residents was a move to extend the a a a a Gss w a Vij by Anne Tyson the american Friendship club will sponsor a pageant Quot humanity s Starrh for brother Ture train at Copenhagen a Tivoli life Quot she urges.

Ben duster this move was shelved. Olive pointed out that there Are some 600 dwelling in Vernon Park of which 89 per cent Are single family residences. All professional groups Are represented. Speaking of the organization and function of the Council Olive said a a group such As this should be Able to control its own environment. We Are primarily concerned with the control of our immediate As to results he said a sometimes people can become so self satisfied they become apathetic in their thinking. I am in Hopes that this is not happening in Vernon he personally wished that there were More group activities in the Community. A Long time resident of the Community is mrs. Alma Coggs 9330 Vernon educational chairman of the Council. She recalled some of the problems that the Council has met and solved in the past particularly problems with Burnside elementary school. She pointed to the Community Tea sponsored by the Council in 1963. She did admit that since that time things have been rather quiet. Like Olive she Felt that the Community ought to be More Active. She noted that there were times when a Community organization is needed. Wistfully she added a most of the people Are usually pretty Busy on individual projects or interests outside of the mrs. Coggs agrees that Vernon Park is a very Nice place to live. She had a special word of Praise for Vernon Park Youngers who attend schools outside of Vernon Park. Oddly enough there is no Church within the boundaries of the Community. One leaves Vernon Park with the feeling of having had a Brief respite from the struggles of everyday living.
