Kenmore Woonerf Community Meeting

7:00pm – 8:00pm
DePaul Student Center
2250 North Sheffield Avenue – Room 120B
Last year DePaul University approached Alderman Waguespack’s and my offices to discuss calming Kenmore Avenue to increase student safety without closing the street.
The solution we’ve reached: a Woonerf!
“Woonerf” is a Dutch word for “living yard” and is a special kind of street that functions as a shared public space by pedestrians, cyclists and slow moving vehicles. It is a concept which uniquely fits the DePaul-Kenmore situation.
Alderman Waguespack and I, along with DePaul University and the Chicago Department of Transportation, want to hear your input on this proposal to create a Woonerf on Kenmore between Fullerton and Belden.
