EVA Monday: The shape of Chicago's ward remap
Who will represent East Village for the next decade? Chicago aldermen will negoatiate their ward boundaries in November. Their first proposal splits the neighborhood between two wards spanning the city: one stretching west to Central Avenue and another east a mile short of Lake Michigan. EVA members will review Chicago's shape-shifting political jurisdictions at the community group's Nov. 1 meeting. Joining the discussion will be Chicago historian Daniel Pogorzelski, Logan Square Preservation president Andrew Schneider and Change Illinois project manager Chaundra Van Dyk. The meeting starts at 7pm in The Mitz event space, the former Lincoln Public Baths building at 1019 N. Wolcott Ave. NOTE: Masks are required for all attendees. Per Executive Order 2021-10, Private Property may still require all persons to wear face masks regardless of vaccination status.
