Lake View Citizens’ Council is a grass – roots community organization that strives to protect and enhance the quality of life in Lake View for its residents and businesses. We are an aggregated voice of ten neighborhood organizations whose boundaries are Lake Michigan on the East, the north branch of the Chicago River on the West, Diversey Parkway on the South and Irving Park Road on the North. LVCC helped c reate the original Cubs Neighborhood Protection Act and we hope to further improve these protections and address potential issues with the proposed expansion at Wrigley Field .
Residents of Lake View enjoy many of the benefits that the Cubs and Wrigley F ield bring to the community. These same residents also bear the brunt of the negative ef fects such as traffic, noise, disorderly behavior and increasing density . Alderman Tunney has been a constant champion for residents on these issues and we ask that yo u listen to Alderman Tunney and the voters within the Lake View community who support the Cubs organization but also want to ensure the quality of life is improved for our neighborhood. A lso a ttached is a letter written in April 2012 to Alderman Tunney af ter multiple meetings with the Cubs regarding night events at Wrigley Field. The proposed expansion is larger in scope and our concerns and need for additional information have increased as well.
