The meeting is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

A packet with information on tonight's agenda items is available online.

Meeting called to order at 7:33 p.m.

A special use request to create a single family dwelling unit in a storefront building at 1100 Florence Ave. is among the items on tonight's agenda.

P 1 – Affordable housing fund grant renewal to the Alliance to End Homelessness $18.5K. Approved.

P 2 – Honoray street name "Clara Hairston Pate Way" for Oakton Street between Ridge and Barton avenues. Approved.

P 3 – Honorary street name "Mailman Tom Pedroza Way" for Colfax Street between Prairie and Brown avenues. Approved.

P 4 – Honorary street name " Samuel Johnson Place" for Church Street between Brown and Dodge avenues.

Two citizen speakers falsely assert that the other people were given two block stretches of street and that Johnson should also get two blocks.

All three proposals are actually only for one block.
