Uptown Residents File Suit Against City And Labor Ready
On Friday, May 2nd, Uptown residents filed suit in the Circuit Court of Cook County against the City of Chicago, the Zoning Board of Appeals and Labor Ready Midwest. The Court has been requested to examine the transcripts of the February 15th ZBA hearing, as well as all documents submitted, and determine whether the ZBA acted appropriately in reaching its decision to grant a special use permit to Labor Ready. Because the matter is now in the realm of the courts, the Uptown Chicago Commission and StopLaborReady will be restricted as to the information they would normally share with the community. When there is news to share, it will be communicated through email communications and postings on this blog. Thank you to all the residents who organized the community, wrote letters, attended the ZBA hearing, and made contributions to the litigation fund.
