Jarvis Square started this petition to Chicago City Council and

As neighbors of the vibrant Jarvis Square business district, we strongly encourage the City of Chicago to consider keeping the pedestrian space of the extended patio as an exclusively pedestrian space. The Square has been vital in providing a safe gathering place for neighbors to stay connected. A beautiful community space for artists, musical talent, and endless fundraising opportunities would be a significant benefit for Rogers Park and the surrounding businesses. The growth potential of the neighborhood businesses and residential community is exponential as we continue to focus on ways to expand Jarvis Square into a central hub

We feel that keeping the portion of the street closed to through traffic will create a safer community space for everyone to enjoy, both as customers of their favorite Jarvis Square businesses and also as our neighbors who deserve another free, community space near all of our homes. We have tried allowing automobile traffic through Jarvis Ave and found it to be incredibly dangerous for patrons and pedestrians alike. Rather than endangering our friends who want to enjoy this communal pedestrian space, we feel using the grant funds afforded to us to create clearer signage, a more vehicle friendly exit strategy, and a safer space for our neighbors to use is in the best interest of everyone.
