Normal Heights Community Association Planning Committee Meetings
4649 Hawley Boulevard, Normal Heights
If you're community-minded and want to learn how true obsessives fight City Hall, don't miss the monthly meetings of this community-planning committee. For two decades, sarcasm, irony, yelling, and a fiendish attention to bureaucratic detail have been this committee's hallmarks. For the next year or so, its lively meetings will grow only more so. The school district now plans to build a school south of Adams Avenue, wiping out seven acres of apartments and single-family homes. Tempers are mounting. Will some residents play the "race card"? Will Bob Young, the mayor's liaison to Normal Heights, show up for yet another terrifying tongue lashing?
