WAKE UP PILL HILL & 8TH WARD RESIDENTS

Posted by Admin On April - 20 - 2018 Comments Off on WAKE UP PILL HILL & 8TH WARD RESIDENTS

Did you know that your alderman, 8th Ward Alderman Michelle Harris, is trying to infiltrate your neighborhood with a low income Section 8 Senior housing unit? This structure, Montclare Calumet Heights Senior Building, will be 134 units, 7 story tall building, scheduled to be built at 9329 to 9429 S. Stony Island Ave. Community residents are furiously angry about her plans; don’t want it, have held community meetings to protest it, and have attended meetings in City Hall with the Community Development Commission and the Chicago Plan Commission, all to no avail. Many residents are angry about the alderman’s plans. And to add fire to an already sensitive situation, both committees consisted primarily of Caucasians who sided with the alderman. Are we going to let people who don’t live in our community call the shots for us and say what is best for our community? However, there are many residents who are not aware of the alderman’s terrible plans.

There will be a press conference in front of the alderman’s office, 8539 S. Cottage Grove Ave., on April 25, 2018 at 1 P.M. There will be a protest in front of the site (day yet to be determined). Call the alderman’s office (773 874-3300) and tell her you don’t want it in the community.

Come out and let your voices be heard…
Zoning board meeting is May 9, at 10:00 am
City Hall, 2nd. Floor
