In conjunction with Alderman Waguespack and Alderman Smith, DePaul University is hosting a public meeting to present a new proposed plan for the 2300 block of N Kenmore. DePaul previously investigated the feasibility of vacating the block. Based upon feedback from neighboring residents and the two Alderman, DePaul is now proposing to preserve Kenmore as a public street that will be open to traffic.

The new plan follows a concept referred to as a Woonerf (a Dutch term for a living street). The meeting will include a Presentation and an opportunity for comments and questions.
