Remember the possibly gang-related beating death not too long ago on Cuyler? The third murder in Uptown this year? The building it occurred in - 820-826 W. Cuyler - has been in housing court for quite some time, and another hearing is coming up on Thursday, December 4th. If you can make it downtown for an hour or so, your presence would be greatly appreciated in court. Your appearance as a court advocate is powerful because it symbolizes community concern.
Meg Gillman, the Area 3 CAPS Building Coordinator, says: "For anyone wanting to get more involved with the community, here would be a great start. More than one murder has taken place around or in this building in the past two years. People need to go to court and get involved if the owner is going to be held accountable for the problems in and around it! Or if you have specific examples of concerns please call Meg (312-742-0991) and leave your contact info.Just a reminder about the next hearing for 820-826 W. Cuyler:
Daley Center, Room 1111 Evidently the owner has not been making good progress on complying with the building violations. Please contact concerned neighbors to let them know about the next hearing. Thank you!"
