UPTOWN — Chicago Surf has big plans that could make Uptown a destination for surfers across the city.

The surf park vendor's proposal, which includes building an on-land surf park and renovating the beach house, will be discussed at a Thursday community meeting hosted by 46th Ward Ald. James Cappleman, according to Uptown Update.

Improvements would include completely renovating utility sewer and water lines and restrooms and adding licensed security officers and security cameras linked to the Town Hall District police station, Uptown Update reported.

The surf park would include a beachside cafe, large patio seating and sell retail merchandise and food such as salads, wraps, sandwiches, beverages and fish tacos, according to its website.

The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the community center, 4501 N. Clarendon Ave.
