Subject: From Shambhala Center
Dear Alderman Moore:
At this time the Shambhala Meditation Center cannot support Mr. Aronson's request for a zoning change on the property adjacent to ours. We have had additional discussions with Mr. Aronson, following the meeting Alderman Moore convened in late October. At that meeting we presented our concept for a project (attached). Our neighbors agreed that the vision we proposed would better meet the needs of our neighborhood. Although Mr. Aronson agreed to take our ideas into account, our later discussions with him have not led to a mutually satisfactory result. We have considered this decision from many different angles. Our present location in Rogers Park and our relationships with our neighbors are extremely valuable to us. We also believe that our presence is valuable to the community in ways that do not seem apparent to Mr. Aronson. We do not believe that a large multi-unit building, mostly seven stories high, although the portion housing the Shambhala Center would be only three stories, is in the best interests of our community. Therefore, we strongly oppose the proposed zoning change for the property at 7313-15 N. Sheridan Road.
Thanks for your assistance in this matter.
Best wishes for the holidays,
Alice Dan and David Stone, Co-Directors
Shambhala Meditation Center of Chicago
