The Forest Park Town Hall Facebook site goes live again, teaming up with the Suburban Unity Alliance for a Town Hall meeting to discuss “Diversity in Forest Park and the proposed Welcoming Ordinance” on Monday, May 1 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Forest Park Eagles Hall, 446 Hannah Ave.

As other area towns adopt Welcoming ordinances, Forest Park enters its fifth month of deliberation on the subject. FPTH and SUA have teamed up to present a panel to answer questions and foster a general dialogue.

Representatives from PASO (West Suburban Action Project), the Forest Park Diversity Commission, SUA, and representatives from local businesses will take audience questions to have an open and honest discussion.

Confirmed attendees include Mayor Anthony Calderone, Police Chief Tom Aftanas, Kate Webster (Diversity Commission Chair), Mony Ruiz-Velasco (PASO executive director), and Claudia Medina (PASO and District 209 board member).

The town hall will start with a 30-minute discussion on diversity in Forest Park and will then move to the informational session on welcoming ordinances.
