As you may know, Children's Memorial Hospital moved out of it's Lincoln Park campus last month in June to it's brand new Streeterville location - and changed its name to Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. The main campus and several properties of Children's Memorial Hospital is being redeveloped.

Alderman Michele Smith in the 43rd Ward (Lincoln Park) is sponsoring a series of community meetings with the Children's Memorial Hospital site developer, this one with live streaming so you may watch at home.  This is a huge property in a fantastic east Lincoln Park location. 

Children's has meant the world to the neighborhood for so many years.  Not only is development sensitive in any strong community but the emotional ties, economic impact and everyday buzz that was Children's in the Lincoln Park community will make consensus of redevelopment plans difficult.
