Greater Ashburn Development Association (GADA)

These shirts were donated by P inkston I nvestors N etwor K, and GADA members and community residents wore them proudly as participants with the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Association of Realtors for the Clean Up The Parks initiatives after the 2020 pandemic riots. Ashburn, as well as other communities who were affected, received the services of giving neighbors and other volunteers.


GADA is the local association of the Ashburn community, established to collectively reimagine the future with other local organizations, partners, and surrounding neighborhoods. We aim to be an extension of the community's leadership to bring valuable resources to the area. Our goal is to play a significant role in the redevelopment & planning for the housing, parks, and corridors with community input. Together we cannot fail!

NEXTdoor - A GADA supporter, sponsored the 2017 Spring Extravaganza. The event brought out nearly 500 residents and business owners, as well as surrounding neighbors. There was face painting, local small business owners with vendor tables: Dan's Soul Food, Lawrences Fisheries, Jenn Care, and Brenda's Cookies, just to name a few. The Alderman greeted the community, Scottsdale Neighborhood Watch President and Vice President mingled in, and there were giant sized games galore! We are eagerly awaiting the time, when we can all safely gather again. Meanwhile, be on the lookout for our alternative ways of staying connected. Check out the "What's To Do" section for upcoming events.
