What We Do

The Italian Village Society serves in four capacities:

Fiscal Agent

Various neighborhood projects use the Society’s 501(c)(3) (tax-exempt) status to fund their projects.

Neighborhood Representative

The Society frequently sends representatives to various community organizations and task forces to assure that the Village’s interests are advised.

Public Forum

Through monthly general meetings, the Society acts as a forum for issues as they arise in the neighborhood, such as business and residential development, traffic, and safety.

Nominating Authority

Society members elect a Board of Trustees annually and also elect nominees to the Italian Village Commission.
