WEDNESDAY: Rally at City Council to Save Lincoln Square!


It was a pleasure meeting all of you on Wednesday night. We can't thank you enough for coming out and showing your support for the Lincoln Square business owners.

This Wednesday, City Council is expected to vote on the resolution that would grant them the authority to acquire the 4800 block of North Western Avenue for private development, including Chicago Soccer, The Dental Corner, and Decorium Furniture. As you heard Wednesday night, if this resolution passes and the owners don't sell, the city can condemn them through eminent domain. We can't allow this to happen.

These businesses are not blighted, and they are not for sale - and the ONLY way to protect them from condemnation is for the city to NOT authorize their acquisition.
Save Lincoln Square will hold a rally at 9am this Wednesday before the City Council meeting (which will convene at 10am) to urge the aldermen to vote against this resolution. We encourage you to attend and bring your neighbors and friends.

The Lincoln Square business owners need you to make your voice heard!
