Central States property highlight of Chicago Grand Neighbors meeting


A follow up to the May 13 meeting about 13 parcels of land owned by Central States Joint Board, highlighted the monthly meeting of the Chicago Grand Neighbors Association (CGNA) Tuesday evening, May 21, in Output Lounge, 1758 W Grand Ave.  

The attendees were asked, "What do you want to see? What's most important to you?" and they responded. 

Responses focused on:

  • less density translating into not 3-story multi-unit buildings matching character of neighborhood
  • street parking concerns around multi-unit rentals that could force residents to file for permit parking
  • set-back in line with houses on blocks translating to more frontage green space with lines that match the homes on the streets 

Alderman Moreno's office, 1st Ward, is coordinating a meeting with the developer, Domus Group, and reps from CGNA Planning & Development Committee, according to Lyn Wolfson, CGNA President. The developers are to present a new plan at the meeting sometime next week.  

Vito Greco, Field Organizer, Energy Impact Illinois presented the program.

CAPS reports were given by Beat 1221's Kim Shepherd and Beat's 1215 by Beth Laurin. 

Event reminders included:

The Greater Chicago Food Depository’s Produce mobile will be in the West Town Community giving away FREE fresh fruits and vegetables at Eckhart Park on May 23 from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. Volunteers needed to break down boxes and hand out food, just show up between 8-8:30 a.m.
