Dear John,
There's a lot on this month's agenda for the Triangle Neighbors' meeting on Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 7PM including:
  • Nominations for 2009-'10 Triangle Officers
  • Setting the day and place of Triangle's annual meeting
  • Hearing the latest on the Park Construction
  • Reviewing the results of the two recent surveys Northalsted Area merchants requested
  • Discussing several zoning issues (read below)
To keep the meeting to a more reasonable length, we wanted to provide as much details in advance.

Survey Results
Thanks for all of your feedback on the two recent surveys we sent out.  The first survey asked about your impressions of Northalsted Area (see the results).  The second survey asked about expanding Chicago Pride Fest to begin on Friday evening (see the results).   LVCC posts all the survey results on our website. 

Zoning Projects for Discussion at Next Triangle Meeting

3552 N Halsted (at Brompton)
Originally presented to Triangle Neighbors in November 2007, there is a proposal to build a mix-used building at 3552 N Halsted.  After, the neighborhood voted against a revised proposal, a third presentation was presented at the March 2009 meeting and drawings have been posted to the LVCC website.
Following the fire at 3320 N Halsted, Kevin Jackson would like to propose an upzoning of the property to match the adjacent properties.
M&R Development is seeking to revitalize the south side of Addison Street between Sheffield and Clark. The proposed mixed-use development consists of a hotel, additional retail outlets and apartment units located along the south side of the 1000 block of W. Addison Street, from Sheffield west to Clark Street and extending south on Clark approximately one block.  The developer has created a website with more details. 
The owners of the shopping center at Clark and Halsted have had some recent discussions to a request to amend the underlying zoning from a B1-3 to a B3-3 in order to allow for a greater range of tenants to re-establish in the Linens and Things location.
