Dear John,
 
We hope you will join us at our next bi-monthly Triangle Neighbors' meeting on Wednesday, November 14th at 7PM at the LVCC Offices (867 W Buckingham - Lower level).   We received some last minute prizes for the Halloween parade that we were unable to distribute so we'll be giving those away to residents who come to the meeting on the 14th.
 
The agenda includes discussing a major zoning proposal at 3532 N Halsted.   This is a new proposal (previous proposals have not been positively received) that calls for 30 units plus 2,450 square feet of commercial space in an upzoning on Halsted (that was previously downzoned based on neighborhood feedback).  
 
We'll also recap the Halloween Parade, solicit input for next year, and have an update on the construction of the wall at Space Park.   Following the meeting, we'll go down to John Barleycorn for complimentary beverages and hors d'oeuvres to meet with the 19th and 23rd district police teams.
 
See you next Wednesday at 7PM!
 
John
Halloween Parade Winners 
Halloween 2007
 
Thanks to everyone who made the 11th Annual North Halsted Costume Parade a huge success!  This year's presenting sponsor was Caribou Coffee, and along with Effen Vodka, the Northalsted Area Merchants Association, and a multitude of sponsors, we were able to raise several thousand dollars to help us with the construction of Space Park
 
We have estimates that 40,000 people came down to watch the festivities.  Almost 300 people registered to march in the parade to be eligible for the thousands of dollars of prizes we gave away, including cash and airline tickets to anywhere in the United States.
 
We picked this year's theme, "Fire Breathin," after securing several dragons.  The parade began was Duncan the dragon, illimunated with thousands of lights and ended with Pyrotechniq's three-headed dragon.
 
We want to thank everyone for their support - especially our volunteers, judges, sponsors, and participants.
