Near Southside, Inc. (NSI) is a private, member-funded, 501 (c)(4) nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing the Near Southside. Organizationally NSI runs with a small staff of four which relies heavily on stakeholders and volunteers to realize the vision of the community. NSI began as a small coalition of Near Southside businesses and community leaders and has grown dramatically over the last two decades. Woven with care, the fabric of our community is on display whether rain or shine.
Neighborhood concepts are re-imagined as the beneficial alliance between the medical district, small business owners and residents ? each strengthen the unique selling points of the others. NSI bolsters members? efforts amidst big city interests, which, in turn, protects the momentum of the neighborhood and, by extension, the community at large. We invite you to join us as we promote the ongoing redevelopment of the Near Southside as a vibrant, urban, mixed-use neighborhood.
