Transportation Report – Ron Lall

Upcoming Referendum – ballots for transportation and infrastructure

  • Neighbors have voiced concerns that exact projects haven’t been specified for all of the budgeted money and they could change; not sure how the money would be used for city vs. district projects; council boundary corridor projects could easily fall through the cracks. Once the public votes on the referendum, then the council votes on the projects.

Treasurer’s Report – Grace Kim

  • We have depleted a lot of our money; we have a PayPal account online for dues and donations; $193 since last month

Jim Williamson – VP Chosewood Park neighborhood association

  • Request for SAND letter of support in helping save the APS school building at 202 Milton Avenue – a 100 year old structure in need of repair.


  • An interested party wants to buy the school (which has been closed for 40 years) and Chosewood Park is looking to remove obstacles in the sale and releasing the deeds to get the sale to move forward. The building is one of 43 historical buildings south of Grant Park. NPU V and Y and GP historic support these efforts.
