Development Committee is tasked, by the Aldermen, with reviewing proposed developments and requested zoning changes within the boundaries of the West Loop. Once the proposal has been reviewed and amendments have been made to the project (if needed) then it is our responsibility to host a community wide public meeting. Feedback is gathered, assessed and included in our final recommendation to the Aldermen for their consideration before the project is presented to Zoning Committee for the City of Chicago.
Welcoming Committee meets with new Business and Residential members to discuss benefits of membership and welcome them to organization.
Our Safety Committee reviews criminal activity reported by the 12th District Chicago Police Department. We have a strong relationship with their Commander, Chief, Sergeants and patrolmen and -women. Aside from reviewing crime bulletins and feedback provided during CAPS meetings, the Safety Committee also gathers feedback from West Loop residents and businesses about a wide range of other safety concerns such as personal/family self-defense, pedestrian/cyclist safety, vandalism, festival safety, online safety, fire safety, and public assembly.
