Leaders of the Southeast Evanston Association are urging members to attend a community meeting tonight about the $1.2 million renovation project planned for Clark Street Beach.

The meeting, called by Alderman Melissa Wynne, 3rd Ward, is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Aldermanic Library at the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The proposal calls for building a new, accessible restroom, storage, office, and concession facility on the beach on the east side of the path and rerouting the access road that now enters the lakefront park at Church Street.

The new building is intended to be a prototype for replacement of other restroom facilities at the lakefront.

In the past the association has argued for minimizing any expansion of structures at the lakefront and requiring that they “harmonize with the historic neighborhood.”
