DUNNING — A recent spate of violent crimes in Dunning will be on the agenda for the meeting Wednesday of the Dunning Neighborhood Organization, group leaders said.
Jefferson Park Police District Cmdr. Roger Bay, a Dunning resident, will be on hand to discuss recent crime trends and other issues at the meeting set for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Dunning branch of the Chicago public library, 7455 W. Cornelia Ave., organizers said.
A number of violent crimes have occurred in Dunning in April, including an incident on April 15 that injured two men in an intentional hit-and-run crash on April, officials said.
In addition, a 35-year-old woman was injured in a shooting April 13, police said.
The group will also discuss plans to extend the Dunning Tax Increment Finance District, perhaps to fund a new public high school to relieve overcrowding on the Far Northwest Side, organizers said.
Other items for discussion include plans for several Movie in the Parks showings this summer, and a campaign to sell light-pole banners to promote local businesses and beautify the area, organizers said.
