For over a year the Chicago Park District has been engaged in revising the master management plan for Montrose Point. COS has been a participant on a group of stakeholders as have many other environmental and parks advocacy organizations. At the last stakeholders' meeting in December, we were glad to see that most of the concerns voiced by birders and others had been addressed in a positive way, and we were able to offer more comments for review and incorporation into the plan.

See the notice of the meeting and please consider attending this public meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 on Thursday evening, Jan. 22  to see the outcome of these efforts.
