Chicago Real Estate Land Use Meeting After Chicagoans Makes Music

June 20, 2011

Are you interested in how the University of Chicago uses its Chicago real estate?

One way will be by taking part in Make Music Chicago on Tuesday, but we’ll get back to that later.

The school is hosting a meeting on Wednesday, June 22 to discuss proposed plans to update a Planned Development, which is a formal City of Chicago document that explains how the University uses its land and what uses are permitted.

The meeting is free, open to the public and scheduled for 6 p.m. in the Assembly Hall at International House, 1414 E. 59th Street in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood.

University officials will be at the meeting to talk about the process of the Planned Development and the long-term goals for the campus. Questions will be fielded from the public.

There will be beverages and cookies served too! Officials are asking for reservations by Tuesday, June 21, so if you are interested in going, RSVP at uchicago.edu/rsvp/communitymeeting or call Mary Ellen Angelucci at (773) 702-6815.

Now, back to Chicagoans making music.

Make Music Chicago is a live, one-day music festival that is held on the first day of summer and celebrates the ability of everyone to make music.

That day is Tuesday, June 21.

Make Music Chicago is inspired by France’s “Fête de la Musique,” a national musical holiday that marks its 30th anniversary this year. Since 1982, “Fête de la Musique” has become an international phenomenon and now takes place on June 21 in more than 460 cities in 110 countries.

This Tuesday, residents of all ages will gather in Chicago’s public spaces to make music!

One of those locations is UIC’s International House. Others include Millennium Park, the John Hancock Center, St. James Cathedral, Prudential Plaza, Oak Street Beach, Daley Plaza, The Breakers and Rockefeller Chapel.

There is music scheduled throughout the day, which is free to musicians and listeners. For a complete schedule you can search by time, location or genre, visit makemusicchicago.com.

How lovely our city is going to sound on the first day of summer!
