Monthly Meeting Tuesday, Nov 8, 7pm

Tomorrow night, Tuesday, November 8, we will host our membership meeting, 7 p.m., in the Assisi conference room of St. John’s Hospital.

Karen Lee, Executive Director, SIU School of Medicine Community Support Network, will be our guest speaker and discuss the Hope Springs apartment project that is currently underway on Ninth St.

The former Hardees building on Ninth St. and the blue warehouse immediately to the south have already been demolished to make way for the new Hope Springs Apartments which will consist of two buildings with a total of 36 units of supportive living for disabled individuals.

The project is being led by Linscott Park Development of Chicago in partnership with SIU School of Medicine Community Support Network. Construction of the $4.4 million dollar project is expected to wrap up by this time next year. This project, in addition to the revitalization efforts of the Enos Park Development LLC, are making major changes to the look of the neighborhood.

Come join us to find out more about these changes.
