Hi Uptown, 

Over the years, I have received many complaints about noise from motorcyclists who race up and down N. Lake Shore Drive. Every alderman along Lake Michigan hears the same types of complaints, and it's no wonder.... the noise is disturbing, especially when it's late at night.

I'm hosting a meeting with the 19th District Police and interested residents to discuss this longstanding issue, along with ideas and challenges involved with addressing this. 

When: Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30pm
Where: 19th Police District Station at 850 W. Addison

Your feedback is needed to assist us with improving the quality of life for all Chicagoans. I hope many of you can make it to this very important meeting.
   
    Best,
