ENGLEWOOD — Five Englewood aldermen are coming together again — albeit virtually this time — for the second annual Englewood Town Hall on Tuesday.

Alds. Roderick Sawyer (6th), Raymond Lopez (15th), Stephanie Coleman (16th), David Moore (17th) and Jeanette Taylor (20th) will be on hand to answer questions from local residents and business owners and give neighborhood updates.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday. It will be hosted on Zoom and broadcast on Facebook Live. Residents can register for the town hall here.

The town hall will also include Englewood (7th) Police District Commander Rodney Hill, Department of Transportation Commissioner Gia Biagi and representatives from the 63rd and Halsted corridor.

The event will be moderated by Derrick Warren, executive director of the Greater Englewood Development Corporation.

Last year’s event drew hundreds of people to Kennedy-King College’s auditorium, where residents grilled the aldermen on everything from economic development to public safety.

Sawyer told Block Club the aldermen had hoped to make the town hall a quarterly event, but the coronavirus pandemic sidelined those plans for now. Still, he said he’s looking forward to sharing good things happening in the community.
