Hello Kickstarter supporters,
Today I can officially say that the people spot, is complete! With the installation of a mural to wrap the outside of the space over the weekend and the installation of our bike corral this morning, we are bringing this project to a close. What we have accomplished with this space is simply unprecedented in Chicago, and we truly could not have done it without your support. You all should be proud to know that you not only played a pivotal role in bringing this space to Andersonville, but your support is actually helping to shape the future of public space all across Chicago.
So in honor of your support, we would love the opportunity to thank all of you in person. This Friday September, 15th. we are planning two opportunities for you to come out and visit with us in the people spot. At 12pm Friday, we will be hosting an official dedication ceremony with Alderman Pat O'Connor of the 40th Ward. Our architects, designers, fabricators, and all of our other partners will be on hand as well, and we want you to be there too. Then at from 5:30pm to 7pm we will be hosting a "Party in the People Spot". We invite you to join us for live acoustic music and free ice cream from George's Ice Cream, as we take some time to enjoy the space the way it was meant to be.
Again, thank you all so much, we hope to see you soon.
