Phone Number:
Enos Park Neighborhood Association

The Enos Park neighborhood is located just north of downtown Springfield and encompasses 36 square blocks of residential and business properties. Once known as the “Jewel of Springfield,” Enos Park represented a diverse community of rich and influential leaders, as well as many working class families. Even today, Enos Park is one of the most ethnically and socio-economically diverse neighborhoods in the city. Its tree-lined streets are filled with unique exles of Victorian, Italianate, and Queen Anne style homes that date back into the early nineteenth century. We hope you’ll visit and take a step back in time, to days gone by, and wonder in amazement what stories these old homes would tell if they could only speak.

Phone Number:
Illinois Chamber of Commerce
Address: 215 E. Adams St

No matter who you are, government decisions impact every employer’s ability to succeed. That’s concerning enough, but consider the fact that hundreds of entities and competitors are hard at work trying to influence those decisions to your detriment. Those decisions now become outright dangerous.

That’s where the Illinois Chamber comes in. We have employers’ backs and are a chion for markets that work. We wield our unparalleled influence to counter anti-business forces and steer government decisions to pro-employment and pro-growth outcomes.

As important as it is, influence alone is not enough. We’ve seen what unchecked, self-interested influence has done to our state’s economy. Influence needs to be bound to strong principles. Commitment to private initiative, markets that work and, above all, integrity.

The Chamber ensures we stay connected to the principles and the priorities of our members through a unique structure that organizes our policy debates. The Chamber’s seven issue councils serve as “chambers within the Chamber,” member- driven organizations focused on issues of particular interest to individual members. These councils set the agenda for the Chamber and facilitates the focus and expertise that makes the Chamber so effective with policymakers, the media and the public.
