About AReCO
Who We Are:

AReCO believes in a balance between economy and ecology.

AReCO is a grass roots organization and is separate from all other organizations. We began in June 1994, with just 26 members. Today AReCO represents over 1200 residents from 42 communities and the City of Park Ridge that are concerned about O’Hare.  There are many national organizations that are also members.

AReCO’s membership is diverse, and it includes people from all walks of life including the business and real-estate community, as well as employees of the airlines, including pilots from United and American. We represent some Chicago Air Traffic Controllers in safety/capacity matters. We are legislative aides, business owners and members of the real estate community, teachers, doctors and others concerned about not only O’Hare noise but its environmental and health problems.

Our concerns:
We citizens are concerned with the increase in incidents of noise, health, safety, environmental problems and; decreasing property values that more flights at O’Hare Airport will bring.
