Broadway Youth Center is scheduled for a hearing in front of the Zoning Court of Appeals Jan. 17.
The youth facility is appealing a zoning decision that said they have to leave their current location at Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ, 615 W. Wellington Ave, where they moved in 2013. Ald. Tom Tunney is expected to give his recommendation on BYC at that time.
The hearing will be at 9 a.m. at 121 N. LaSalle St., Rm. 200.
Four days prior to the hearing, on Jan. 13, South East Lake View Neighbors will issue a final recommendation to Tunney on the BYC matter. The neighborhood association has been working on a Good Neighbor Agreement with BYC officials and Tunney's office. SELVN will meet Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. at Second Unitarian Church, 656 W. Barry Ave.
