A meeting occurred today with Centro's owners, Ald. Pawar, a representative from Ald. Tunney's office, a representative from CPD and community members. Centro will continue to operate as a club but has agreed to scale it down. They also said that they are securing a new location for Centro and are in discussions to transition ownership of the current location to a new restaurateur.
Ald. Pawar and Ald. Tunney's representative were supportive of the transition and insisted that Centro operate as a restaurant. However, promoter-led events at Centro are scheduled for the coming weeks including over Halloween weekend.
Please stand together to keep our community safe. Remain aware of this issue until it is proactively resolved. Continued communication and dialog with each other and the City officials is the key to a timely resolution for our family neighborhood.
