Nov. 2 Lunchtime Roundtable - Recap

Moderated by the President of the PACC Board Iwona Filipiak, the lunchtime roundtable and update on the Milwaukee Ave Polish Heritage Corridor we hosted the other week was a resounding success. More than 20 owners and reps of Milwaukee Ave businesses and the PACC had an excellent opportunity to engage in a lively and informative discussion featuring State Senator Cristina H Pacione-Zayas, State Representative Delia Ramirez, and State Representative Lindsey LaPointe who were the main legislative sponsors of the Act which designated the new Milwaukee Ave Polish Heritage Corridor.

Reps of the City's Department of Planning and Development, Daniel Pogorzelski who proposed the designation, and Jim Robaczewski, President of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America - PRCUA and Chairman of The Polish Museum of America also participated in the roundtable which mostly dealt with the significance of the designation and its future, as well as doing business along one of Chicago's most important commercial corridors.
