The East Village Association sent this letter on May 21 to Ald. Proco "Joe" Moreno regarding development on the 800 blocks of Marshfield and Paulina.
We were disappointed to learn that the City will not facilitate a land swap to reestablish the original alley between and running parallel to Marshfield and Paulina. However, with your support and the developer’s cooperation, we believe we can still achieve some of what the alley swap would have accomplished.
Last month's 48 reported violent crime incidents in West Town were one fewer than in April a year ago. There was one homicide, on April 28, described by the Chicago Tribune as a bar fight that spilled onto Division Street in the 2500 block.
The East Village Association analyzed statistics downloaded from the City of Chicago Data Portal and published on the Tribune Crime in Chicago website, comparing them to the same period a year ago.

New occupants of the closed 13th District city police station will be introduced to the community at the May 6 East Village Association meeting. A representative of Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart will answer questions about the Cook County Sheriff's central warrant unit.
Cmdr. Augie Fabela, leader of the warrant squad, tells EVA he is excited to be working in the neighborhood, and asks that community groups and residents continue a discussion with the sheriff's police. He wants the warrant unit to be more than the new tenant of the Wood Street station.
