Behavior in Wicker Park, including a controversy over chess tables that critics say draw unruly homeless people, is the subject of a public meeting March 12.
The meeting will be held in the Wicker Park Fieldhouse 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 the park.
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. a brief meeting will focus on updates on 2013 events produced by the council and its community partners in collaboration with the park district.
