Harley Clarke Public Forum- Weds., Oct. 10, 2018 - NEW VENUE - CHANDLER CENTER


Join CSNA at a special forum on Weds., October 10, at 7 p.m. to learn more about the current status of the Harley Clarke property, in light of the ballot initiative and ongoing discussions to move forward to demolition.

On November 6, Evanston voters will be asked to weigh in on an advisory referendum on Harley Clarke. The referendum reads as follows:

“Shall the City of Evanston protect from demolition and preserve the landmark Harley Clarke buildings and gardens next to Lighthouse Beach, for use and access as public property, consistent with the Evanston Lakefront Master Plan, at minimal or no cost to Evanston taxpayers?”

CSNA has invited representatives from the referendum sponsor, Save Harley Clarke, as well as from the Evanston Lakehouse & Gardens, the Evanston Lighthouse Dunes, and the City to discuss the issues and what the referendum means for the City. So far, representatives from Save Harley Clarke and Evanston Lakehouse Gardens have accepted.

What happens if the referendum passes? What are the next steps? Who is involved? What will happen if the referendum fails? What happens if the plan to demolish moves forward?

The forum will be held at the Chandler Center 1028 Central Street – Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
