Community Meeting for Controversial ‘Ravenswood Station’ Slated for May 3

By Hunter Clauss | Saturday, May 1, 2010

Lincoln Square residents will get another chance to sound off on the controversial ?Ravenswood Station? development project on Monday, May 3.

The proposed mixed-use project would be built in a vacant Sears parking lot near the corner of Lawrence and Ravenswood avenues, and the development originally included a grocery store, a fitness center, and an 11-story condominium building. But residents shot down that plan during a community meeting that took place last year. Some residents questioned the scoop of the condo building and how the tanking economy would affect it, so the project?s developers decided to revise their plans.

Residents will get to see those new plans on May 3 at? 7 p.m. at McPherson Elementary School, 4728 N. Wolcott Ave. Participants are encouraged to bring an ID and proof of residency in case a vote is called, according to an e-mail supposedly sent out by Ald. Eugene Schulter?s chief of staff, Don Luna. Schulter?s office did confirm that a meeting about the project is slated for May 3.
