Restaurant plan shakes Damen neighbors

Neighbors of a car-repair shop at 820 N. Damen Ave. oppose its conversion to a burger bar. In East Village Association board discussion, president Michael VanDam said that neighbors' nuisance concerns should take precedence.

In the board's planning discussion, committee chair Brian Foote said 855 N. Wolcott Ave. had been demolished and plans for a residential 3-flat were in Landmarks Commission review. A cottage at 912 N. Wolcott on an oversize lot is slated to be razed despite a $685,000 selling price.

  • Seeing as this is on the west side of the street, which is Ukrainian Village, not East Village, what does that neighborhood group have to say about it?
