Welcome to The Lakefront Car Tower Blog

Welcome!  You are at the Stop the Lakefront Car Tower Blog.  We are dedicated to providing information and opinion about the dreadful proposal by Tawani Enterprises for a Lakefront Car Tower at the southeast corner of the intersection at Sherwin Avenue and Sheridan Road (7317-31 N. Sheridan Road) in our wonderful lakefront community of Rogers Park.  On January 16th Alderman Joe Moore convened a community meeting, in accordance with his zoning review process, that was well attended and illustrated the opposition to this project.  Alderman Moore has yet to issue a decision on this matter, tacitly highlighting the fact that this is a very troublesome proposal for our community.  Repeated calls to Alderman Moore's office have yielded no answers as to the status of his review.  It is important that the Alderman demonstrate his dedication to democracy and transparency by issuing a statement that details where his office is in the review process and how he will ensure that residents have a voice regarding how their community is planned and developed.  If you haven't already, we encourage you to sign the petition and read the online accounts of the proposal.  If you any questions or comments, feel free to email us.
