I invite you to attend a community meeting to review a Hartigan Beach Erosion Chicago Park District Project to curtail sand erosion at Hartigan Beach (Albion and the Lake) by planting grass on a portion of the beach. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 15th, 7:00 p.m. at Loyola University’s Crown Center Auditorium, 1001 W. Loyola (at the Lake).
A similar project undertaken since 2003 at Loyola Park has been successful in keeping beach sands from eroding and blowing onto sidewalks and into the park. A natural area, that once was common along the entire lakeshore, is now being restored there.

The photo on the left, taken near Pratt Pier, shows the type of grass that would be planted at the perimeter of Hartigan Beach.
If you have any questions about the proposed project, please contact Cecilia Salinas at my office at email@example.com and she will attempt to answer them or put you in touch with the Park District.
