Alderman Brendan Reilly Covers the Waterfronts (Lake Michigan and Riverwalk) and Much More at SOAR Annual Town Hall Meeting
Saying, "I hear you loud and clear," Alderman Brendan Reilly (Ward 42) fielded dozens of questions about traffic, safety, development, infrastructure, parks, bicyclists, riverfront signage and dog poop from nearly 200 neighbors at SOAR's annual Town Hall, held June 10 at Loews Chicago Hotel. He was joined by Police Commander George Devereux (18th District); Marilynn Gardner, president and CEO, and Brian Murphy, COO of Navy Pier addressed traffic issues at that site. In an hour's presentation, more issues were covered than space allows here; we've been told that DNAInfo Chicago plans to cover the event in several issues and you can find them here.

SOAR is grateful to General Manager Christian Hansen and the staff at Loews Chicago Hotel, for hosting this Town Hall meeting and reception.
