Set for 6:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Holstein Park's field house, 2200 N. Oakley Ave., the gathering will give attendees an opportunity to discuss the potential removal of four automated red light enforcement cameras located at the intersections of Ashland and Diversey avenues and Western and Armitage avenues.
