Petitions and phone questions unanswered by Alderman Joe Moore on North Shore School demolition

North Shore School of Rogers Park

From a readers email:

In the last 24 hours, a construction fence was erected around the North Shore School building, 1217 W. Chase Avenue. Calls to Alderman Joe Moore's office asking whether a demolition permit has been issued have gone unanswered.

Attached is a petition circulated last fall and presented to the alderman's office, asking that the building be preserved. At the time, the alderman's office indicated a school was interested in locating there. Apparently that fell through.

We will raise this issue at tomorrow's (March 8) meeting (VISIONING SESSION: North Lakefront Devon to Juneway) at Loyola Park, 1230 W. Greenleaf, sponsored by Friends of the Parks.

Such an important historic building should not be demolished! Please come Saturday and express your opinion.
