    The SRO conversion/demolition moratorium ordinance was passed by the Chicago Committee on Housing and Real Estate this morning by a voice vote. The only person who gave a no vote and a anti-moratorium speech was my former Alderman James Cappleman, who left long before any pro-moratorium testimony was given.
    On Wed 7/30 a press conference is planned between 9-10 am prior to the 10am start of the City Council meeting which should vote on the moratorium.

The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the launch of their pop-up public gathering space and art piece, People Spots, available now through October at 2863 and 2914 N. Clark St. Two sites on the east and west side of the street host two unique People Spots, each containing fixed seating areas of various styles, bistro tables, chairs and strong public WiFi signals. For more information on the People Spots and campaign in general, please visit www.LakeviewEast.com.

In 2013, the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce and Special Service Area #8 (SSA #8) launched the Clark Street Task Force, a community-driven strategic planning process to develop concepts for the improvement of the Clark Street Corridor. Residents, business owners, and property owners were surveyed with a top priority being an increase in the amount of nearby pedestrian gathering space through People Spots. Participants viewed People Spots as a way of activating a welcoming public space in the corridor without the attendant costs and disruption of traditional construction.

The two unique, 6 ft. x 40 ft. installations are designed separately by Katherine Darnstadt of Latent Design and Duane Sohl of Sohl. Architect with Gary DeStefano of DCR Builders, LLC. Both were chosen from a request-for-proposal process, with each satisfying the desire for increased public gathering and green space. The green space for each People Spot is installed by Patch Landscaping. Patch also creates and maintains the hanging baskets and planters throughout Lakeview East as well as the “urban oasis garden” located within the annual Lakeview East Festival of the Arts (September 13 and 14, 2014).

Though a comprehensive rethinking of the corridor is well underway based on feedback from the strategic planning process, the People Spots provide immediate place-making benefits for those who live, work, dine, and shop nearby.

    ...so we're just handing the extra $$ over to LAZ now ehh...

    Does the city reimburse the parking meter company, or does East Lakeview CoC?

    typically the organizer of such a thing would have to secure the funding
