Ravenswood Station, Sears lot development meeting scheduled for May 27th, 2010 at McPherson Elementary

The next meeting and expected community vote on the Ravenswood Station, Sears parking lot development is scheduled for May 27th at 7PM at McPherson Elementary 4728 North Wolcott Avenue.

Some neighbors have been receiving a notice in the mail. However, many residents including myself have not received notices even though they are in the advisory voting area for the development. There is no mention of the meeting on the 47th Ward Alderman's web site as of this writing and we have not received an email update from the Alderman's office for the meeting (I assume this may happen by at least Friday but it should happen NOW).

Here are the voting boundaries as stated in the Monday May 3rd meeting:

Please bring an ID or something to show proof of residency in case a vote is taken to determine the outcome.
To vote you must live within the following boundaries: Paulina (east) Winchester (west) Leland (south) Winnemac (north).Your attendance and input at this meeting is extremely important.

A neighbor in the voting area called the Alderman's office to ask if in fact a vote would take place and at what time and she received no clear answer. Read related stories by clicking here.

PLEASE vote YES to this project!

I know many of you have legitimate concerns about traffic and the Metra. These are valid, but you have to look at the big picture. It's time for a change and we would like Lawrence ave to continue to improve.

I am sure that things will work out for the best for most everyone involved, even if that means that it may be hard for some people to accept the new plans.

We call all argue for and against change, but it's best to come together as a community and not waste this opportunity.
