SOUTH SHORE — It’s South Shore’s turn to come together to talk about the issues facing the neighborhood as big changes loom on the horizon.

The South Shore Works is holding the South Shore Solutions summit from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. April 29 at Powell Elementary School, 7511 S. South Shore Drive.

Woodlawn and Washington Park, the other two neighborhoods under the purvey of a new nonprofit meant to capture the economic benefits of the Obama library to improve the neighborhood, have already held their own summits.

The South Shore meeting is expected to have a similar agenda to the Woodlawn Summit but with a greater focus on the consolidation of the Jackson Park and South Shore golf courses.

Other topics include the restoration of the South Shore Cultural Center, plans to reuse the former Urban Partnership Bank, efforts to revive the Avalon Regal Theater and Barack Obama’s presidential library.

The summit is a chance for leaders in the community to get updates on the many issues facing South Shore and talk about solutions.

The event is free and open to the public. To register, visit the event website.
