Dear Neighbors,

The Chicago Tribune repeated their support this week for a real park in the former Industrial Corridor, urging Mayor Emanuel to adopt this vision.

The Community Meeting on the North Branch Park Preserve is Monday, April 23rd at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the Little Sisters of the Poor Community Room, 2325 N Lakewood Avenue. Parking is available.

The Chicago Tribune repeated their support this week for a real park in the former Industrial Corridor, urging Mayor Emanuel to adopt this vision.

See why a city-wide coalition of local groups and the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times  support this vision as the last opportunity to create true public open space in the former Industrial Corridor. 

Learn how The North Branch Park Preserve . will ease unprecedented density, transportation challenges and strengthen property values in light of the game-changing Lincoln Yards project coming to our doorstep.

B.L.U.E.S. will continue to operate as a blues music venue and bar. The City of Chicago requires the new owner to seek a new liquor license and a new Public Place of Amusement (PPA) application. 
 
I requested the new ownership explain their plans at a community meeting and answer questions from the community. My office will be present at this meeting to monitor the discussion, take notes and record your feedback. More details here .

Here's hoping the coldest April in 137 years will end soon. Hope to see you Monday as we discuss the North Branch Park.
