Holiday party at artist's studio Dec. 6

Minutes of Nov. 8 board meeting submitted by Greg Nagel

Roots/Bleeding Heart

Greg Mohr and Scott Weiner presented plans for the Roots pizzaria and Bleeding Heart Bakery cafe at the northeast corner of Chicago and Winchester. The project is building to be LEED certified, maintaining facade, and will have valet parking. It will not apply for a PPA license. Bleeding Heart will have 100% electric ovens to reduce emissions, adding stairwell in front to take deliveries through front loading zone. Roots will have an estimated 60/40 food to liquor mix. No music is planned for Roots outdoor patio or Bleeding Heart rooftop deck.

Concerns noted in the meeting:
  • Location abuts residential street.
  • Is Roots really more of a bar than a restaurant?
  • Noise from Roots outdoor patio and garage door style windows on Winchester face.
  • Alley concern with incoming/outgoing deliveries, late night pizza/ organic ice cream pickup window on Winchester, garbage cans/ bins in a narrow alley.
Aaron Bilton will reach out to Ald. Joe Moreno to explore idea of changing the direction of Winchester from Iowa to Chicago so it is one way south, which would reduce street traffic from Roots.
