Thanks to neighborhood tipsters Dan and Sarah for sending me information on the Community Meeting this Tuesday March 24th, 7:00PM at McPherson Elementary 4728 N Wolcott Ave (proof of residency required if vote is taken). Please contact the 47th Ward for details at 773-348-8400.
I first heard about the latest push to get this deal done from Alderman Schulter awhile back at a Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce networking event. The meeting will contribute to its progress.
The Ravenswood Metra stop across from the proposed development is wanting for a new station.
Excuse me while I spaz on this one. The Rojas family is breathless in anticipation of the mixed use development plans located at the Metra/Sears parking lot at West Lawrence and North Ravenswood in the Ravenswood neighborhood. The online plans show a grocery store and fitness center in the retail spaces. Awesome. Just awesome. We'll NEVER move.
Please attend the meeting on March 24th.
