Leaders from multiple city departments and representatives from a wrecking company tasked with demolishing the Damen Silos will hold a community meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at The Arturo Velasquez Westside Technical Institute at 2800 S. Western Ave. in the 12th Ward. Community members are invited to attend the meeting which is being held "due to the size of the Damen Silos, its historic use, and proximity to the south branch of the Chicago River," according to a news release from the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH). The city's Office of Climate & Environmental Equity, Department of Buildings, CDPH and the wrecking company are expected to give an update on the permit application to demolish the silos and plans to ensure public health and the environment is protected during the process.
