Art Norman Host Community Discussion On Harley Clarke. Thurs. Jan 24th 6:30

HARLEY CLARKE COMMUNITY GATHERING

Thursday, January 24 from 6:30-8:30pm

at the Evanston Civic Center, Parasol Room.

 

The event, chaired by NBC’s Art Norman, will engage residents in conversations that will be used to inform the Evanston City Council of the sentiment and public priorities regarding the future use of the historic Harley Clarke House and Jens Jensen gardens.

 

The Evanston community that rallied to save the lakefront Harley Clarke mansion for public use is holding a community dialogue to actively solicit resident input on the future use of the historic home and gardens.

 

Over the last several years Evanston residents have fought against efforts to privatize the mansion and subsequent efforts to demolish it. Last November, more than 80% of the voters decided overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the mansion for public use, with Evanston’s predominantly African American fifth ward showing the highest support with 84 percent voting in favor.

 

The Harley Clarke Community event aims to attract many residents who have not traditionally accessed this Northeast lakefront part of Evanston (African Americans, Latinos and others) to hear their interests and vision for the public lake house and gardens.
