On March 20th, 2014  Chicago Helicopter Express (CHE) will proceed to Plan Commission regarding the proposed heliport located at 2420 S. Halsted. To date, Chicago Helicopter Express has held only three community meetings for surrounding neighbors regarding the proposed heliport; however, notice of these meetings was given only days in advance, catching the community off guard and giving them little chance to challenge the claims of Chicago Helicopter Express (CHE)

Please join us to speak up against the Heliport:
Chicago Plan Commission 121 N. LaSalle Street Council Chambers—2nd Floor, City Hall Chicago, Illinois 60602 March 20, 2014 1:00 P.M

At the Plan Commission, you will have the opportunity to speak up to three minutes in opposition to the heliport and/or submit you testimony in writing. We encourage everyone to do both. Please arrive no latter than 1:00 P.M. There is a signup card as soon as you walk into the council chambers .
PERRO and Bridgeport Alliance are organizing a community forum for late April on the heliport.  We have reached out to several experts on environmental issues to examine what might be in store for us.  We asked the Plan Commission to hold off their hearing until May after our community forum but they have not responded

Once agiain the hearing on the Pure Metals LLC’s proposal to  build a polluting metal shredding facility across Juarez High School has been postponed! The Zoning Board of Appeals set the new date for:
       Date: February 21, 2014 Friday

       Where: City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St., 2nd floor
Due to construction work at City Hall, the hearing was canceled.

This is the current location of Acme Refining (in Bridgeport) but they want to move to Pilsen. Please come to City Hall Friday January 17 2014 at 2pm to testify against this facility that is expected to add diesel  pollution from trucks and other problems. Please let us know if you can make it! - Dorian

Calling for Volunteer speakers!
Hi All,
As you may already know, the zoning permit hearing for Pure Metals recycling LLC is set for next Friday January, 17th , 2:00pm at city hall. If we want to avoid having to deal with any possible future environmental and health issues associated with having a mega shredder in Pilsen, PERRO and the community need as many people as possible to testify against the metal shredder coming to Pilsen. Please let us know if you can possibly make it. Your time will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
