St. Boniface restoration on Eckhart Park agenda

Ald. Walter Burnett Jr. will discuss plans to save St. Boniface Church at the Aug. 18 meeting of the Eckhart Park Community Council.

Previously, the 27th Ward alderman reported that the Archdiocese of Chicago and the City of Chicago have been negotiating a potential land swap. The city would take possession of the property and identify a developer to restore or adapt the church building at 921 N. Noble.

However, the Roman Catholic archdiocese has the necessary permits to demolish the church and remaining buildings.

The East Village Association has called for restoration and reuse of the church, which it fought to save in a demolition threat a decade ago.

The meeting is 7 p.m. at the Northwestern Settlement House, 1010 N. Noble. Updates are posted at
