mayfair civic association neighbors making a difference since 1945


Welcome to the Mayfair Civic Association website. Our organization is made up of Mayfair neighbors coming together to help make our community a better place. We hope you will join us as often as you can, if not at our meetings, then at this virtual gathering spot.

Zoning Update The Zoning Committee does not have any scheduled meetings at this time.

Adopt a Bumpout The Beautification Committee is looking for volunteers to maintain the new "bumpouts" (sidewalk planters) that will be installed in October as part of the new Lawrence Avenue Streetscaping. Volunteers would be responsible for weeding and picking up trash (plants are watered automatically). Bumpouts are located at the corners of Kenneth/Lawrence, Kilbourn/Lawrence, Kenton/Lawrence (2), Kilpatrick/Lawrence (2), and Keating/Lawrence. There are also three planters on Elston Avenue. If you are interested please call Tom Keating at 773-545-9569 or email
