Unwanted behavior inside Wicker Park, including a controversy with chess tables that critics say draw unruly homeless people, is the subject of an upcoming public meeting March 5.
The meeting will be held in the Wicker Park Field House at 1425 N. Damen Ave and will be hosted by the Wicker Park Advisory Council, which seeks to "present solutions for better enforcing the Chicago Park District's code of conduct" in all areas of Wicker Park and for the benefit of all park patrons.
From 7 to 8 p.m., Ald. Joe Moreno (1st), Park District officials and the advisory council will give a presentation, followed by 30 minutes of public comment, limited to 2 minutes per person, with RSVPs requested in advance to Doug.Wood@WickerPark.org.
From 8 to 9 p.m. there will be a brief meeting to share updates on 2013 events produced by the council and its community partners in collaboration with the park district.
