A 2 million dollar proposal for a Dollar General store within the CSBA boundaries has been submitted by a developer looking to purchase the former Hoods property at 3300 Jefferson.
Forward movement on the project is anticipated to happen shortly. Although the plans were submitted to the Alderman a month ago, they were not made available to the CSBA until yesterday.
This is a the largest development within the CSBA boundaries in decades. The CSBA Board of Directors would like to hold an emergency meeting, to gain broader public input, facilitate discussion, and issue a letter of support or opposition to the proposed use.
Lets kick off 4th of July weekend Thursday July 3rd STyLe House on Cherokee street will be hosting Polkarama Baklavathon, a variety performance art night with drag, burlesque, pole dancing and MORE!

We are asking for help to remodel our bicycle shop. We need to make room for more products, and 15% of all money raised will go to Penrose Park velodrome.
We are Cherokee Street Bikes. We are an independent, neighborhood bike shop. We sell new bikes, do repairs, and sell parts and accessories. We’ve been open since March 2011.
Right now, our shop needs some help. There are a lot of things that need to be fixed, updated, and revamped. We have plans to remodel the shop, but we need your help to cover the costs.
