  Space Park VolunteersSPRING CLEAN AND GREEN - MAY 2007 
Thanks to the dozens of volunteers who came out on Saturday, May 5th to clean up our park.  In a couple hours, we literally transformed the two lots to a blank canvas.  
 
Thanks to the Lake View Chamber of Commerce for co-sponsoring the event and supplying us with Ann Sather's Cinnamon Rolls!

We owe a special thanks to Neill and Patch Landscaping.  Neill Mansfield lives in Triangle on Buckingham and is the general manager of Patch Landscaping.  Through his work with the Lake View Chamber of Commerce, he learned of our desire to clean-up 815-817 W Roscoe to prepare it for the design phase.  Neill brought three truck loads of volunteers, tools, and supplies.  His crew made quick work of clearing all the weeds, leveling the ground, re-planting the roses and butterfly bushes, and re-installing the fence.   He left us with several new customer coupons that we will be passing out at Wednesday's meeting.

Two landscaping companies have submitted designs for our park based on the guidelines we sent out and several more have indicated they will be submitting something soon.  The park will be a "community garden park."  For insurance purposes, it will not have any children's play equipment, any water features, and pets will not be allowed.
 
We'll be reviewing the proposed designs during our meeting on Wednesday.
 
 
ZONING CHANGES AND LICENSES REQUESTED
Time permitting, we will review some recent zoning changes and new licenses requested by area businesses and developers including:
  • The formation of a 44th Ward Committee to develop long-term planning for the area around Wrigley Field (given recent proposals for large structures on Addison)
  • The acquisition of "Pepper Lounge" on 3441 N Sheffield
  • Korean BBQ Liquor License Request for 3463 N Clark
  • Upzoning requested for 3532 N Halsted (currently Brompton Auto Place)
  • Proposed Hotel at 3473-3475 N Clark (restrictive covenant was not enforceable and zoning change was denied by Alderman)
