Date: Monday, July 9, 2018
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: Alta Tower, 801 S. Financial Place, 3rd Floor.
This building is located on Polk and Financial Place.
All of the public is welcome. We will be in a meeting room.
The Grant Park Advisory Council is calling a special
public meeting to discuss the Chicago Park District's
attempt to take over GPAC and violating its by-laws.
This action is in spite of the Chicago Park District's
own Advisory Council Guidelines which state; "It is
important to note that PACs are separate and
independent entities apart from the CPD."
GPAC is one of the most active councils and meets all
of CPD requirements of a compliant council. Further,
its meetings are the most well-attended and everyone
has always been welcome.
GPAC officers were democratically-elected and at every
public election and before, there are always requests
for candidates. The elections have been supervised by
the Chicago Park District Fieldhouse supervisor.
At this public meeting, we will give Grant Park updates
and discuss all sorts of important information as to
what has happened over the past year.
Thank you for attending.
