The meeting had a wide range of topics.  Some serious (see South Loop Schooling situation as well as Crime/Safety update) and some not as much (look a new dog spa called Blu Dog Play Stay Spa at 2000 S. Wabash) it was pretty informative - even if you weren't able to attend.

There were a ton of development updates.  It looks like attendees were treated to an overview of all the prospective Motor Row developments.  They also had updates on two new townhouse projects (one at 18th and Prairie and the other on the 1800 block of South Calumet).
