2013 Wrigley Field Advisory Meeting

wrigleysignThe 2013 Wrigley Field Advisory Community Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. It will be held in the Community Room of the 19th District Police Station (850 W. Addison).

The Meeting is held each year “to report on, review, and address, past, present, and potential activities concerning the Cubs’ and the City’s activities for neighborhood protection and improvement related to baseball games and any other events at Wrigley Field; to recommend possible changes and to obtain counsel on the expenditure of the CubFund…”

Discussion will include the proposed Wrigley Field renovation and related Cubs proposals that would significantly affect the East Lake View Community.  Such proposals include:

  • more night games
  • the use of Sheffield Avenue for Cubs’ game day activities
  • the erection of signs that would impact our rooftop neighbors

Be reminded, East Lake View Neighbors is a branch of the Lake View Citizens Council (LVCC).  Read the letter sent to Mayor Emanuel from LVCC (.pdf) that notes the shared concerns of our Community regarding what is being proposed by the Cubs. Also, read the letter sent to Alderman Tunney from LVCC (.pdf).

This meeting will be your opportunity to ask questions and voice your concerns to involved City officials, and to show support for positions taken by Alderman Tunney.

St. Patrick’s Day in Lake View

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend (Friday, March 15 through Sunday, March 17) will bring large numbers of revelers to our Lake View Community, particularly on Saturday, March 16, the day of the downtown parade.

Our 19th District will assign extra police to the area to take enforcement actions against activities that affect the quality of life of our residents.  Parking will be restricted on the 3400 N. to 3600 N. blocks of Clark Street on Saturday.  Clark Street will only be closed to vehicular traffic if deemed necessary by the police.

Nevertheless, area residents should avoid Clark Street, particularly on Saturday after the parade (about 2:00 PM).  As always, report any problems you observe to 911.
