6:00 pm

After several months of collecting input from community members through outreach and previous community meetings, the Chicago Park District is ready to unveil its final draft of the expansion plans for Buckthorn Park. The Chicago Park District and Alderman Dowell are proposing a $1.2 million expansion of the small park at 4347 S. Calumet Ave. that will be renamed for Hadiya Pendleton who is the King College Prep student killed by gunfire in 2013 a few blocks away from the expansion site.

Alderman Dowell and representatives from the Chicago Park District will be on hand to answer any questions and listen to any concerns community members may have. This is part of an ongoing effort to make sure the park’s expansion meets the needs of the community.

Where: Hansberry Square Community Room (4034 S. State St.)

When: December 11, 2014, 6pm
