Dear John,
If you haven't already, please take a couple minutes to take this Survey on Proposed Planned Development at Clark, Addison and Sheffield.  The entire development is within Triangle's boundaries and so it is extremely important we get your thoughts about this proposal.
There are weekly Wednesday meetings for the next several weeks between planning the Halloween Parade, CAPS 2331 Beat Meeting and our next Triangle Neighbors' meeting.  We hope you can join us for one or all of these meetings that each start at 7PM.
Finally, we want to make sure everyone knows that Halsted Street will be closed for the Halloween Parade beginning as early as 3PM on Saturday, October 31st. This will impact not only Halsted, but also the side streets between Belmont and Addison. 
Community March: Taking Back the Streets

There will be an upcoming Late Night Community Walk in the 44th Ward.  Residents can join police officers and community leaders to walk the streets to show solidarity during two separate walks.  Neighbors will meet at Roscoe and Halsted (7-Eleven Parking Lot) on Saturday, October 24 at Midnight and at again at 2:00am Sunday morning. (Both walks are late Saturday night.)  
To improve safety, Alderman Tunney's office will be installing next week new, improved street lighting on Roscoe and Buckingham from Clark to Halsted.
If you have any questions, please contact the 23rd District CAPS Office at (312) 744-0064 or Alderman Tunney's office.

Halloween Day Events: Saturday, Oct 31st

This year, Halloween is more than just the parade!  
The Center on Halsted has a free, family Halloween Party from 1PM to 3:30PM.  LGBT Families can join in on the boo-tastic fun with haunting movies, not-too scary storytime for tots, halloween cookies made to order by ghosts and goblins with loads of games, tasty (& healthy) treats tossed in for good measure.
All kids are invited to participate in Trick or Treating on Halsted with Northalsted Businesses (Grace to Belmont) from 2PM to 4PM.  Costumed characters from Alice in Wonderland will point the way to participating merchants. 
Kids and their parents are then welcome to join us from 4PM to 6PM at Space Park (815-817 W Roscoe) for more fun, games & special prizes!  Space Park will be transformed by Two Lights Theater Company into Wonderland for a Tea Party!
At 5PM, the Chicago Red Line caberet group will perform on the main Halloween stage located in 7-Eleven's parking lot at Roscoe and Halsted.
At 6PM, before the parade kicks off at Belmont and Halsted, Jimmy John is hosting a "Big Wheels" relay race in which ten participating companies will dress up in their most ridiculous halloween outfits, race on the parade course and scarf down Jimmy John sandwiches - all to raise money for a charitable cause of the winning team. 
Of course the parade is the main event with several thousand dollars in prizes awarded to a dozen winners between kids, pets, adults, couples and groups. To enter, you must register in advance FOR FREE from 4PM to 6PM.  Kids will register at Space Park; Pets will register on Roscoe near the Park; Adults, couples and groups register at SPIN Nightclub (800 W Belmont).
