Community Meetings

Community Meetings are designed to resolve complaints made against a business in Chicago without resorting to license discipline. Such complaints often include: loitering, trash, excessive noise, traffic congestion, public intoxication, prostitution, gang or narcotic activity. During the Community Meeting process, a BACP attorney facilitates meetings attended by the licensee, community members and representatives from the alderman’s office and the Chicago Police Department. In order to initiate the Community Meeting process, BACP must receive a written request from: the Alderman of the Ward where the business is located, the Chicago Police commander, or five (5) residents who live within 500 feet of the business.
