ROGERS PARK — Later this month the City Council will vote on whether to name the street corner outside the 49th Ward Democratic Party headquarters after David Fagus, the party committeeman and long-time Rogers Park resident who died in December after suffering kidney failure.
The northeast corner of North Ravenswood and West Greenleaf avenues — outside party headquarters at 1774 W. Greenleaf Ave. — would be named "Honorary David Fagus Way" under an ordinance proposed by Ald. Joe Moore (49th).
Moore said the ordinance should go up for a vote during the May 20 City Council meeting. If passed, a dedication ceremony for new street signs bearing Fagus' name would likely take place in early July, he said.
Fagus' 10-year-old kidney transplant failed nearly three years ago, and he was severely ill before he died.
