St. Boniface, Byrd School in land swap

By Scott A. Rappe 

Chicago's Community Development Commission will be reviewing the proposed Department of Community Development acquisition of Byrd School at 363 W. Hill St. and its sublease to the Archdiocese of Chicago.

This transaction is part of a swap for St. Boniface Church, at Noble and Chestnut. It will allow the city to purchase the church from the Roman Catholic archdiocese and then sell it for preservation as an independent living development.

The meeting is at 1 p.m. April 13 in the City Hall second floor Council Chambers at 121 N. LaSalle St. This meeting is only for the Byrd School part of the deal, but if it passes, the St. Boniface purchase and leaseback will be able to go to City Council for approval.

Please get the word out to supporters of the St. Boniface preservation to be able to speak in support at the CDC meeting.
