On behalf of The North Avenue District, thanks to Igor Studenkov and the Wednesday Journal/Austin Weekly News for your interest in efforts to revitalize North Avenue from Austin to Harlem. In particular, we appreciate your most recent article, “A redevelopment plan for North Ave. in the works,” on the revitalization plan being developed by CMAP (Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning).

Your readers are strongly encouraged to take the online residents survey (https://northavenue.metroquest.com/ or www.oak-park.us/northavenuesurvey) if they live near or make use of North Avenue (Austin to Harlem). The more people we hear from, the better the plan will be. The survey will close on Aug. 31, so please don’t delay.

Judith Alexander

Chair, North Avenue District
