Artrice Clark is the new property owner of the building at 606 East 75th Street next door to Marlon’s. ( where the travel agency and Laristo’s was)

He is planning to open a Black Hen Pantry which is like a 7 Eleven, or White Hen Pantry as soon as possible.  The hours would be 8am-8pm. This would be where the travel agency was located.

He wants to open up a lounge where Laristo’s use to be.  They will be open 7 days a week.

At the meeting at the alderman’s office yesterday, it was mentioned that it is a good thing to bring responsible black business to the community.  There is also a need to address weakness and strengths on how the business will affect the community and have a plan of action for your weakness.   
As a community, Artrice Clark did not address an action plan for:
o   Parking 7 days a week (how this affect the community)
o   Loitering on our block after customers leave his establishment.
o   Garbage left on the blocks within the 250 feet radius of the establishment.
o   Those that use the alley like it is a bathroom.
o   How he plans to give back to the community.ie (sponsor a youth baseball team, offer discount to the community)

However he mentioned that he wants it to be a place where the community can come and have a nice time with a jukebox and sometime live entertainment.
The Alderman Sawyer (773 635-0006), Darlene Tribue, Community President and the new owner Artrice Clark  all three needs to hear from you in writing or via phone before the next court date.
