Ald. Osterman's latest newsletter:
"On Tuesday, I hosted a community meeting with neighbors surrounding the new Mariano's at 5201 N. Sheridan Rd. In order for Mariano's to serve and sell alcohol, we needed to lift liquor moratorium 48.13 on Sheridan Road (from Berwyn on the north to Winnemac on the south, both sides of the street.)
80 community members attended the meeting and voted unanimously in support of lifting the moratorium. Additionally, many people who could not attend reached out to my office to voice their support.
Due to community approval, I will move forward with the City of Chicago to lift the moratorium which, per city ordinance, will stay lifted for one year before being re-installed."
