community meeting on 11/19 - new use for the Mega Mall

Tomorrow night will be community meeting to review a proposal for a new home for the Chicago Math and Science Academy (CMSA) . The meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m. at Touhy Park Fieldhouse, 7348 N. Paulina (across from the old Clark Mall site and the new firestation).

CMSA is currently located at Morse and Paulina in the old St. Jerome's School. They have outgrown their current location and are actively looking for a new Rogers Park home. The school plans to purchase the old Clark Mega Mall site at 7212 N. Clark Street and adapt the existing building (vacant for several years) into a new school for grades 6-12. This would require a zoning change from the current C2-2 designation to RT-4.

Mr. Salim Ucan, principal of CMSA, and CMSA's attorneys and architects will present site plans and renderings of the proposed school. If you are interested, please attend the meeting to provide your opinions of the proposal. If you are unable to attend, please send an e-mail with your thoughts and suggestions.
