Have You Taken This Survey for the 13th District Station?

Since February, a 5 person group of volunteers has been working with the 1st Ward office  to ensure that what goes into the space where the 13th District Police Station currently is,  will be what the community wants.  Alderman Moreno has already secured an $800,000 commitment from various entities to develop the site.

  • He previously fielded a survey and received 450 responses. Now, he have a new survey with modified and fresh questions.
  • Since he has a firm timeline for demolition of the building, he is asking that community members complete this 2nd survey (even if you filled out version 1) and pass it around so the results can be analyzed and your voice heard.
