Follow up to Tuesday’s meeting

I would like to thank Reverend Joy Douglas Strome, Pastor of Lakeview Presbyterian Church, for hosting our quarterly General/Community meeting on Tuesday night. Reverend Strome highlighted some exciting Summer programs that the Church will be conducting. She also discussed the remarkable plans for the proposed new building project. For more information, please go to lakeviewpresbyterian.org.

We had a great turnout for the meeting. Approximately one hundred (100) people from the community came to hear about Alderman Tom Tunney’s proposed Sports Plaza Ordinance and to hear from the Cubs about their competing Patio Liquor License application. These two (2) opposing proposals have received a lot of attention in the press. I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the Cubs and to Alderman Tunney and his staff for their informative presentations.

Regardless of how you may feel about either plan, I urge you to take this rare opportunity to have an impact on what happens in our neighborhood. Please take a few moments to send an email to Commissioner Steadman at BACPliquorcommission@cityofchicago.org. Please send a copy to Alderman Tunney at ward44@cityofchicago.org. In your letter, please state your support or opposition to the Cubs/Ricketts Patio liquor License Application and briefly state why you are opposed to or in favor of the license. Additionally, please be sure to include your address so that the Commissioner knows that you an area resident and not a fan from outside of the neighborhood.

As I write this letter, the Cubs have sent people out to collect signatures on a petition in support for their Patio Liquor License. This may be the last and best opportunity for the residents to have a say in what happens in our neighborhood.

The deadline to have your opinion considered by the Commissioner is 5:00 today. Please send your email to BACPliquorcommission@cityofchicago.org. Please send a copy to the Alderman at ward44@cityofchicago.org.

Thank you,

Jim Spencer
President, East Lake View Neighbors Association
