Emerson St. Bridge in Evanston to close Monday

7th Ward Meeting, April 24, 7-9 pm., the Civic Center

Children have been ardent advocates of the branch library system. They are welcome to attend the 7th ward meeting on April 24 from 7-9 pm at the Civic Center. Discussion of the library should be finished by 8. I hope everyone will come, be proactive and convince the new Director of Library Services that the North Branch Library is important to all of us.

If we know what the new proposal for 708 Church is, I hope to hear what you think of it. That discussion and an update from EPD comprise the rest of the agenda.

Citgo Site Proposal In Works

Developers of the current Citgo gas station site at Crawford & Central reportedly will present their concept to Design Evanston on Thursday, March 27.
